  1. FS2020 download problems

    This questions seems to be commonly asked but i see no conclusive answers. Help pls.

    On Sept 10 I purchased a new PC specifically to run Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020. Specs are more than adequate to run the program and are set out below. I set up the PC and commenced downloading the program, apparently just over 100GiB in size.

    More than 24 hours later only 25GiB had downloaded and the process appeared to have stalled.

    At that point I undertook as much troubleshooting as I was technically able to engage in, including

    - Run multiple ping and internet tests. Ping around 80. Download around 90 Mbps , upload 6 Mbps

    - Rebooted PC and router multiple times

    - Changed router port. Cat 6 cable Ethernet

    - Made changes at the command prompt as suggested by the developer.netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal

    - Changed the destination directory, and changed it back

    - Uninstalled about 20GiB and started again.

    None of which had any impact on the download speed of about 2Mbps which means I still had more 100 hours of download to go.

    Have also;

    Reset in the Windows Store

    Run the troubleshooter and undertaken other actions as instructed by ‘Pam’ and Jacqueline from Xbox gamer help. See conversation copied below.

    Have browsed the Microsoft Community questions and answers.

    None of which helped.

    I then purchased another licence from Steam. That started downloading ok but as soon as the boot package finished and the update from Microsoft commenced, the download rate dropped back to about 2Mbps.

    Lastly, we uninstalled everything we could find to do with Flight Simulator and re commenced the download via Steam. I seems there has been an update in the meantime because the total download has increased in size. But as I type on my old pc my new very expensive FS pc is still downloading at 2Mbps with around 90 hours to go. I remain unconvinced that the program will run properly even if I do manage to get it installed

    PC Specs;

    Windows 10 64 bit

    Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6GHx - 4.4GHz

    DDR4 Ram 16GB

    Storage 512GB SSD

    GPU GeForce RTX 2070 Super 8GB

    Internet is fast with heaps of bandwith

  2. FS2020 updates

    Tried your suggestions, Greg. No change. Troubleshooter doesn't find a problem. Nothing to update in the hub - says the FS2020 update was 8/13 (which seems odd) but the simulator didn't show up under apps like all the others that come with Windows 10.

    FS2020 only shows up under All Owned in the Store App where the only option is to launch it.

    Could this be a left-over from the original install??

    FS2020 Premium DeLuxe not workin

    Hi! I am an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft user like you. Do take note that as independent advisors we are not responsible for the development of Windows or the computer hardware and drivers. I will try my best to help you out.

    I was able to find this information from the Microsoft FS2020 website that I believe is very similar to what your problem is. Go to the link below, once you are on the webpage, go to "180159: Steam Premium Deluxe Content Missing [SOLVED]"

    Microsoft Flight Simulator Known Issues Tracker - Microsoft Flight Simulator

    Follow the suggested steps there and check if your Premium Content is now loading for you. It's best to do a restart of your computer once you have downloaded/installed your premium content.

    Here is also another article for troubleshooting other MSFS 2020 issues. You may perform these steps if the above solution does not work.

    I hope the information above would help you out. Stay safe!
