    Re: Horizon not opening

    Make sure your Anti-Virus software and/or Firewall isn't blocking Horizon. Try disbaling them or adding Horizon as an exception, then try opening again.

    Re: Horizon not opening

    Left click on Horizon and run as administrator.

    It may not work but give it a try.


    Future Goal!

    Make sure your firewall and antivirus are both disabled, you can turn both back on when not using Horizon.

    Re: Horizon not opening

    Some people say they have disabled their anti-virus and/or firewall fully but they have not.
    Make sure you have FULLY disabled your anti-virus.
    You may also want to try disabling Windows Firewall.

    To disable Windows Firewall, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type Firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
    2. On the General tab, click Off (not recommended).
    3. Click OK.

    To enable it again, simply do this:

    1. Click Start, click Run, type Firewall.cpl, and then click OK.
    2. On the General tab, click On (recommended).
    3. Click OK.

    Note: If the General tab or the On (recommended) option is unavailable, the system may have a policy against running the firewall. Contact the system administrator for more information about how to enable the firewall. In addition, the system may already be running a third-party firewall (Zone Alarm or Norton Internet Security, for example). Contact the system administrator for help in determining whether a firewall is already running on the system.

    Also try navigating to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR NAME HERE\Local Settings\Application Data then delete the folders XboxMB and Xenocode.

    You may also want to re-download Horizon as Hero stated.

    Try re-downloading Horizon by using this link:

    Horizon - CNET Download.com

    Then try to Run Horizon as Admin.

    This is more than likely a .net framework error. Simply download 3.5 and install it.
    Once the installation is finished, restart your computer and run Horizon as admin.
