I’ve seen various posts with similar issues, but wanted to post mine as nothing I’ve seen in other threads fixes it, and I’m very close to permanently uninstalling which is a shame.
- On starting MSFS yesterday it said there is an update available, but when I clicked the link it’d open the Windows Store but there was no update option.
- So I solved this by loading the Windows Xbox App, and launching the game from there — update download started
- I ran out of time and had to cancel the upload before it had finished
- On trying to load MSFS today, the update starts from the beginning, but keeps failing midway through the first file, and so is stuck at 0%
I’ve tried signing in and out of Xbox app, used NetLimiter to restrict download/upload, running MSFS as administrator, completely uninstalled the sim, removed packages, deactivated all anti-virus and Windows defender, and still I have the same problem — stuck at 0% on trying to reinstall the whole sim.
This is so frustrating, it just seems so badly coded, and help or advice much appreciated.
