Can I install from another computer?

I had to do a fresh Windows install on one of my rigs. Can I copy the install from the other rig over my wired network or do I have to re-download it?

1 in new PC install msfs app (1GB) digital ownership, xbox app etc.
2 after that do not install whole game
3 copy root_game_folder from old PC to new PC
4 after that in new PC edit last line in file UserCfg.opt

InstalledPackagesPath "T:\MSFS 2020"

T:\MSFS 2020 is root_game_folder not root app folder from ms store

so if you copy root_game folder for e.g. to D:\msfs_copy
you must edit last line

InstalledPackagesPath "D:\msfs_copy"
