Microsoft Flight Simulator now available

Recommended Posts

Update: Version, A hotfix for CTDs related to custom input profiles is now available in both the Microsoft Store and on Steam.


Microsoft Flight Simulator version is now available. To install the patch, simply close and relaunch Microsoft Flight Simulator, this should then automatically open the Microsoft Store and the update will download.


Some packages in your community folder may not have been updated and, as a result, may have an unexpected impact on the title’s performance and behavior. Please move your community package(s) to another folder before relaunching the title if you suffer from stability issues or long loading times.

As always and as noted in the banner at the top of this page, don't forget to check for updates in the Microsoft Store app first. When you do, you'll see a 955.8 MB update for MFS you'll want to install first. Afterwards, when you to into MFS, you'll find an additional 7.16 GB waiting for you to download.

Seems to be something wrong for me. I downloaded the MS-Store-Update and as you stated, there was another update when launching MSF2020 but mine has already downloaded 20GB now. What´s happening here?

By the way - 15633% 🙂

I paused the download and started MSF again. It continued donwloading packages but now it looks okay(ish): 79% completed, 16,23GB from 20,75GB so at least it´s plausible now... Still wondering what I´m downloading here.

Unfortunately this update does not seem to be working for me. I downloaded the update from the store first.  Then it went to install but for some reason FlightSim shut down (not sure if my fault or not).  But then when relaunching it just sits and spins saying "checking for updates" but NEVER begins the download again.  I let it sit for over an hour.  Just pins and spins.  This is NOT very good.... does not even show any status as it never makes it past the CHECKING part.  


I am not very happy about this.  All I wanted to do was a quick hour flight tonight and three hours later I am still here.  This is very bad.  What and why do they force unreliable updates like this that cant somehow update behind the scenes.
