Horizon stuck on splash screen not loading

i have pretty much the same issue that emily had below. i had previouly used horizon beta with success, although not on this pc, im currently running win8, does it not run on win8 since it doesnt let u install it b/c its built in? i’m on the latest version

It should work. Do you have Microsoft .net framework 3.5 installed?

.net framework 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.5 are enabled in my windows feature tab, it takes horizon about 5 minutes after i open it to display the splash screen then i had it sit on the splash for 10 minutes without any results.

ok after windows went through and “made changes” that were supposed to have been that way already, denoted by the already checked box horizon now boots up almost immediately tho the settings for enabling different framework versions shouldnt be so hidden…

also while i have a support thread opened how do i add “profiles” to horizon it always says it belongs to an unknown profile whenever i open somthing and i cant seem to figure out how to do it. thanks in advance

Do you have the flash drive that you have the profiles on configured to be an xbox 360 flash drive?

yes i do
