Frequently Asked Questions

What do I do if I was in the Beta?

You will automatically get the new build within 1 hour of when the update goes live. If you do not want to participate in future Betas, after you have updated to the latest build, manually leave the Beta. If you do not manually leave, you will be included in the next Beta build that is released.

Where can I find out about Known Issues

Click here to view the Known Issues list

This page will be updated within a few days to reflect the latest patch.

How do I see my current version number?

Press Alt+Enter to change the program from full screen to windowed mode. The version number is at the top title bar of the window. Additionally, the version number is displayed by holding down Alt+Tab (above the window icon) or available in-game by clicking on your gamer tag profile icon from the top right of the main screen. The version name is displayed in the dialogue box under your gamer tag

Do I need to do anything with add-ons in the community folder?

We highly recommended that you move the content from your community folder to a temporary location on your hard drive before applying the patch and replacing after testing the new version.

What is the file size of the update?

Size to download:
If you update the sim from the previous version:

For Premium Deluxe users, the update is roughly 22 GiB. You will need 40 GiB of free space.

Why were certain bugs or issues not included in the patch notes?

The patch notes don’t mention everything that has been updated. If you are still experiencing an issue then create a topic in #bugs-and-issues or file a ticket on Zendesk , using the “Submit a Request” option on the top menu bar. Include as much detail as possible, including the version of the game you are running. Remember the forums are not the official platform for bug tracking.

This patch is part of an ongoing patch release, so if your issue isn’t patched this time it does not mean it won’t ever get fixed! Check out the #self-service:bugs-issues category to see if others are reporting the same issues (where you can also vote if you have the same issue)

The Known Issues page will be updated within a few days to reflect the updated bugs.

What should I do if the update doesn’t start automatically?

  1. Check Windows 10/11 for updates. If any, restart your PC
  2. Manually check MS Store for Updates
  3. Then update MSFS

If this still doesn’t work, the best course of action is to log out, restart your computer, and log back in.

What should I do if the update seems to stall or stop downloading?

The first thing to try is closing down MSFS and restarting it. The downloading should start again once MSFS is restarted. If there are problems with a particular file downloading repeatedly (on a loop) then exit MSFS and browse to the download location where the file is downloading to using windows explorer. Delete the offending file (if it is listed) or the latest downloaded file in that folder and then restart MSFS. The patch should continue as normal. (Note only delete files do not delete folders!)

Was able to launch and see the new splash screens but no indication for update (Steam Client nor within the Sim).

Reboot and try again :slight_smile:

Downloading 20GB here now…(premium edition)

It’s going now on Steam.

I’m downloading it now on my Xbox Series X.

Started with FS95 and these sims helped with my real world training. Looking forward to the 40th edition update!

21.58GB / Premium Deluxe

256Mb/s

The Microsoft Store is ignoring the fact that I have a Premium version of MSFS and it’s asking for full payment to avail of the 40th edition! I cannot upgrade without paying €119.99 again!

Can I download to a different drive than my installation drive?

I have 38GB free on my installation drive and it’s saying that it’s ‘not enough space’.

You need at least 40gb if I’m correct.

It’s telling me I don’t even own the Premium Deluxe version, which I certainly do!

Move other stuff instead.

Can confirm, a reboot helps to get the update.
