Halo 5 Forge not launching

OP BEASTY BOY 115

So me and my buddies have been wanting to play custom games on halo 5 forge but it just wont launch it's stuck on the launch screen where it just says halo for all of us. whats wrong.
I’ve experienced this problem as well. I have no idea the cause or how to fix it.
<p>
I have been played this game on this PC for over a year.
Now Halo5 Forge will not launch…Sticks at the “Halo” screen then goes blank.
Have try opening the game from Xbox Console Companion, from Halowaypoint login, and desk top short cut. All result in the same launch to “halo” screen then goes blank.
I have checked the following and all are fine.
  1. Installed the latest version of Win 10 Home version 2004 OS , 329
  2. Checked Xbox Network on Win 10:
    1. Internet Connection : Connected
    2. Xbox Live Services: Up and Running
    3. Latency: 23ms to 53ms (changes)
    4. Packet Loss: 0
    5. NAT Type: Moderate
    6. Server Connectivity: Connected
  3. Also Uninstalled and re-installed Halo 5 Forge
  4. Game Mode: ON
Thanks for you help and this issue.
Have a great day and be safe.

Everlasting

Found this about the Halo App which is different from the Halo5 Forge Game.

"If you currently use the Halo PC app to launch Halo Wars 2 or Halo 5: Forge, as of 8/16/2019 you will need to launch each application individually. Please note that this will have zero impact to your ability to play and enjoy these games and has no impact on performance."

The Halo app is just a GUI (graphic User Interface) to launch the games.
The Halo 2 Wars and Halo5 Forge should still be working.
Solution to Halo5 Forge launch.

Delete the Halo App (not Halo5 Forge) from your PC.
{It should be under Windows Setting/Apps/Halo}
Then download the new “Xbox Console Companion”
Open the XCC and find the game list and then launch Halo5 Forge from there.
Hope this helps.
It’s been working for me for the last 24hrs.

I cant launch it at all.. looks like the halo app has been ended totally. When i try to launch forge any way i try, it launches the halo app and stops
Same, I try loading Halo 5 forge, and it get stuck on the halo app
Found a fix, delete the Halo app, keep the halo 5 forge app. Should fix the problem with it getting stuck on the "Halo" screen
I’m on my Xbox one x and this won’t launch. Been trying for days now.
a mi también me pasa lo mismo abro la aplicación de halo y se queda trabada y luego intento ejecutar Halo 5: Forge y tampoco se abre
Uninstall the Halo App and leave forge, Forge will launch fine afterwards.

Go to Win10 Settings > Apps > find HAlo App and uninstall, once again leave Halo Forge
I uninstalled Halo App and now my Halo 5 Forge won't launch it goes into black screen and then just closes,
Ran into this problem today. Going into Apps & features and uninstalling the Halo app fixed the issue.

What you mean the Halo app? When I type Halo in the search bar I can only see Halo 5: Forge.
And there's no such app on the store too, there's only Halo Channel.

Edit:
Solved, found it. I deleted it and now when I search for Halo 5: Forge on the search bar I simply select it to play, no need to use XCC.

I did the same as these two and was actually able to launch Halo 5: Forge and Halo Wars again.
Spoiler:

EDIT: RESOLVED!!!

It would appear that there was an issue with the Xbox services on my PC.
I followed the instructions in the description of this video: https://youtu.be/7HqWR6WzV4s
Basically, I just had to restart every Xbox service and ensure that they were set to automatic startup so this issue doesn't happen again.
I think this might also fix the issue I was having with Xbox game bar not recording in MCC.
