Do you have any add-ons in your Community folder? If yes, please remove and retest before posting.
All removed (even a full re-install of the game), didn’t change anything
Are you using Developer Mode or made changes in it?
Brief description of the issue:
Since the last update, Microsoft Store updated the FS 2020 game. Now, everytime I launch the game, after the loading screen (with the rhinos) the installation manager opens with a “checking for update” prompt. After a few seconds I’d get a “connection lost” error. Continue crashes the app, Stay offline just doesn’t load anything.
Interestingly, first time I launched the game after last week’s update, I got a message from my firewall saying that the MSFS 2020 app did not have a digital certificate. I’ve whitelisted the game and even tried with firewall fully disabled or uninstalled. Did not change anything.
Tried with community folder emptied, as well as a full re-install, but getting the same error when trying to install the full game.
