  2. The Microsoft store should open automatically and start the download when the game tells you this, however, if it doesn't you can open up the Microsoft store and navigate to your library at which point you should be ble to install the update.

  4. Hi, Error codes that start with “0x800” are Microsoft store related, and it's likely the only people that would be able to assist you with resolving this error is the Microsoft store support team. I'd recommend contacting them regarding this. https://support.microsoft.com/ (Store App tab) (Troubleshoot section) https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/28808/microsoft-store-contact-support As for having both "Microsoft Flight Simulator: [Version] - Preorder" and "Microsoft Flight Simulator", it is completely normal to have both.
  5. We try to reply to most helpdesk requests within 24 if submitted within the week, but due to the mass amounts of tickets we are currently receiving, it may take slightly longer than usual.
  6. Folks, we have now locked this thread seeing as it has served its purpose. For all MSFS support related topics, please use the section here.
  7. Hi, The code provided is a one-time use, however, it is bound to your Microsoft account. This means if you wish to install the game on a new PC , you'll need to ensure you are logged in with the same Microsoft account as you were with your old PC. You will then need to install the disc content, and then download the launcher from your Microsoft store library. There's some screenshots on this here.
  8. Hi, Please ensure the code is entered exactly as shown on the card included with the box. if it is, please create a ticket here: https://helpdesk.aerosoft.com/portal/en/newticket Please do provide a picture of the card and the error in the ticket. Thanks!
  9. Could you please make a ticket about this on our portal https://helpdesk.aerosoft.com/portal/en/home so we can assist you with this?
  10. For the benefit of anyone that comes across this post, do note that in the above picture the 20 GB update is completely normal and should be expected. This is to download the premium content as all as to provide any updates pushed out by Asobo.
  11. Hi, You'll need to press install on the app registered to your account with the key provided. This will say it needs around 120 GB, however, it will only download a 1 GB file. Make sure to install this to the same drive as where you installed the disc content. Once you then launch that 1 GB file, it will find the existing files placed on your drive by the disc setup.
  12. What is the exact error you are getting? If you could please contact us directly at https://helpdesk.aerosoft.com/portal/en/home we'll be able to help you out.
  13. Hi folks, We have added this temporary forum section for the up and coming Microsoft Flight Simulator. In the future, we'll be performing some planned maintenance to our forum to make this forum and other sections stand out and be a bit more organized, but for now, we'll be utilizing this section.
