Hello, I owned the PC PMDG D6 from the Microsoft store and also have a copy directly from PMDG website. When deleting the file from the marketplace content manager, it keeps reinstalling after each game start. So I end up with both files installed at the same time. I do noticed some files does this.
Is it safe to to delete the folder PMDG D6 from the folder name One Store from the MFS directory location? I want a solution assuming there is one so the next update doesn’t add the deleted folder back into the same location.
If the one from PMDG’s site came with an installer then their data will have overwritten the marketplace one so no. I would try uninstalling them both (PMDG first) and then installing just the PMDG one.
There is an actual problem. When both are installed at the same time, I only see liveries from the marketplace version and not the PMDG website. I am not able to see additional liveries that comes with the website version. While in the game I am able to delete the marketplace again then it works but when I restart the game, the same file loads back up.
This is an odd one for sure. I have done a similar thing but have not noted this issue.
I had a couple of airports that I initially purchased through marketplace then got bored waiting for MS to pull their fingers out and post the updates so uninstalled and purchased them again from external vendors.
The marketplace version remain owned but they do not download nor self install.
Maybe it’s an SU7 thing. Tbh I’ve not really bothered with FS2020 since they broke TrackIR, VR and wrecked previously nicely arranged settings with SU7 so I may not have noticed a new bug with content owned at 2 different locations
I have to wonder if this has anything to do with Marketplace causing the sim to reset all assists to easy. Anytime since SU7 one goes to the marketplace these assists go to easy.
Microsoft put out a hotfix preview available to insiders to rectify that and other issues such as VR and Track IR problems.
I had to stop flying until they release a proper hotfix because I’m getting notifications of Marketplace updates. When I go there, sim resets to easy. Some ppl get this every sim start-up.
Just my 2¢
Scroll down and you’ll see this relates to Marketplace updates
Please closed the thread as solution was found. Found file from One store directory and it seems to be working. Ran a test a few times and not seeing the file reinstall itself after it has been deleted. Will monitor when world updates live to see if it remains deleted.
