Brief description of the issue:
I started MSFS, after 1 month absence. Before the start-up sequence starts, I get a pop-up “Your game needs an update”, however the update bar shows “Error”; clicking the Resume button leads to shut down of game. MSFSHelps says I should uninstall and re-install the game. Any other suggestions? Thanks.
