I finally caved in and bought MSFS after seeing that a VR beta program is opening up. I was an alpha and beta tester before if that makes any difference. The alpha / beta was fully uninstalled as far as I can tell.
I assumed that all the initial “can’t download”, “stuck downloading content” issues were just a problem in the first few weeks and soon fixed. Seems I was wrong.
I tried an install, left it overnight and woke up this morning to it stuck on 9.6gb. I closed and rebooted, now when I start, I press the “Any key” (why, MS why) and I just get a spinner in the bottom right corner. That’s it no error message.
Of course, someone will say “Google for solutions” but most articles are from near the launch date. I have no idea now much of it is still relevant.
- Setting English (US) as my default language
- Rebooting numerous times
- Disabling antivirus
- Running as administrator
My internet speed is only ~60mbs so I don’t think I need to try the ‘Net Limiter’ stuff?
What else should I try before I refund this? I’m pretty shocked that things are still in this state after two months.
