  1. Installing downloaded version of MSFS 2020 over Game Pass for PC version


    I have been using the Game Pass for PC version of MSFS 2020 Standard for the last month to try the new version of the game. I now wish to purchase, download and install the Premium Edition of MSFS 2020 to replace/overlay/convert the Game Pass version.

    Are there any identified issues with performing this task? Will my existing logbook, graphics/other settings, liveries, cached files, etc. be retained? In other words, will the installation be seamless, keeping all my old data and simply require the "digital key" to activate the software?

    Thanks in advance for any information the community can provide.

  2. Xbox Game Pass and boxed version of MSFS 2020

    Hi, I've somehow screwed up my MSFS 2020 installation:

    1. Downloaded Xbox game pass for PC and pre-order of Microsoft Flight Sim 2020 to trial the simulator and loved it so much I wanted to buy it.

    2. Wanted a DVD hard copy of the game (for some unknown reason) so purchased the boxed Standard Edition form an online supplier

    3. Uninstalled the pre-order app and Installed the boxed DVD's onto my game SSD for flight sims Drive 'G'

    4. On completion of the install, Windows Store opened, automatically, for me to input the 'Product Key' and started to download another 1gb of content from the store.

    5. Sim started. no problem, downloaded patch which I installed onto game SSD

    6. Sim appears to work without problems but there are only 2 aircraft available the Daher and the Cessna 152. All of the planes are in the the 'Onestore' folder of the MSFSPackages folder on my 'G' Drive

    Has the product key been assigned to the pre-order app version which somehow didn't remove itself entirely? See image below

    I have noticed that I have a packages on my 'C' drive in app data which I think is the problem but how do I fix this. If I uninstall the sim and try to reinstall it outside of game pass it just says that
    the key has been registered to another user, which I assume is my game pass user name?

    Aerosoft cannot help because this appears to be a Microsoft account mix up on my part but I really want to be able to play the game I have purchased.

    Any help would be appreciated.

  4. Installing downloaded version of MSFS 2020 over Game Pass for PC version

    MSFS 2020

    Greetings! I've bought MSFS 2020 SD Edition on the 15th of July. Nonetheless, I'm struggling to find the site to download the game since I've been a steam player and am not used to the microsoft store. Every time I click on my order, it takes me to the store
    and won't allow me to download the game itself.

    Cheers.
