While Microsoft’s launch of Flight Simulator 2020 has largely been a success (apart from the odd monolith), lots of folks have found that the massive 150GB app can get stuck during installation.
Our own Engadget editor Richard Lawler was blocked on installation when a data pack got corrupt, and Engadget Japan’s Ittousai was stymied by the non-ASCII character issue.
To that end, Microsoft has released a patch designed to fix multiple installation issues, along with some minor stability and other issues.
In this article: Microsoft, Flight Simulator 2020, installation, patch, version 1. 7. 14.
If your installation has failed, developer Asobo Studio recommends that you uninstall any instances of the game in order to re-install it cleanly.
In addition, the game will no longer automatically download packages deleted by the content manager or get stuck in an infinite loading state when offline.
