  1. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 needs disc to Start


    Hello,


    I bought the Premium Edition of the new Flight Simulator 2020 Retail-Edition with 10 DVD's.


    After installing the game and starting it, it always requests to insert DVD No. 1 to start. Is there any work around to avoid this? The game is bound to my Microsoft-Account so this relict of long ago copy-protection is not needed.


    As I only have an external DVD-drive, I always have to connect it if I want to use the game.


    Thanks a lot for your support.


    Regards

    Wolfgang from Germany

    :)

  3. Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 - PC System Requirements

    Dear Microsoft,

    I am very excited about purchasing the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 in the future, but first, I need to know some further details about the PC hardware the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 needs for the best smooth performance.

    As far as I know, the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 will rely mostly on the CPU and VGA, and will use lots of CPU power and lots of graphics card power

    How many CPU cores will be used by the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020?

    How much megahertz does each CPU core needs to have for the best performance?

    Will a GeForce RTX 2070 series graphics card with 8GB Graphics Card Memory be more than enough for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, to play the new Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 on graphics settings on maximum without loosing performance?

    If I have the right PC hardware, would it be possible to play the new Microsoft Flight

    Simulator 2020 with the Graphics on maximum without loosing performance?



    Kind Regards

    Tharanga

    Microsoft Flight Simulator issue after Windows 10 Upgrade

    Hi Rahul,



    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.



    I suggest you to completely uninstall Microsoft Flight Simulator and check.

    Refer the steps below to uninstall.

    • Press “Windows key + X”, select Control panel.
    • Open programs and features.
    • In the list of installed programs, select Microsoft Flight Simulator, and then click
      Remove.


    Note: If you have earlier versions of Flight Simulator in the list of installed programs, you will have to remove them in addition to Flight Simulator.



    Reinstall the Flight Simulator.



    Please reply to us if the issue still persist.
