In the past (and this time also) I don’t leave the beta until the release goes live.
On leaving the beta the MS Store will download the current “live” version for MSFS. For that reason I tend to remain in the beta programme in Insider Hub until the release, so as the data contained in the Official/OneStore folder is in sync with the version I intend to run… if any of this helps.
Note: In the past, as part of installing the live release MS Store version, the MS Store has been known to “uninstall” the current beta version. If the downloaded content is stored in the default
location then this has been known to get wiped.
For this reason it has been recommended to ensure that, unless one wants to download everything again, the installation path for the downloaded content is set to a custom path, as this will be left intact.
