1.03GB Update For FS2020?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi all

I have pre-ordered the premium deluxe version of FS2020 about a month ago and installed the small file less than 30mb.

I just went on the microsoft store and pressed "checked for updates" and it downloads a 1.03GB update for FS2020. I wonder if this is starting to download day by day so as not to overload the servers on the 18th.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Yes, I had this, too. It makes a few base directories and files just for the launcher. And btw., I was free to choose on which drive I wanted it to reside.

I expect it do preload more close to the 18th. 

Kind regards, Michael

I just downloaded this Michael and it didn't offer me the choice of where it could be installed. I assume it installed on my C drive which is not where I want the final product to be. I hope I get a choice on the big day!

This is crazy. I was given a choice (with C:/ preselected by default), changed it to L:/ and the 1 GB were installed there. 

You may still be given a choice when downloading the main contents, but it's strange.

Kind regards, Michael

Good to know. Since I guess this is part of the release, can you check to see whether the files are encrypted or not?

Basically, the file structure seems to mimic the one on C:/. It includes a WindowsApps directory which I can't access.

In the alpha, I was able to change permissions etc. to make the directory accessible, but I am not inclined to play with the release stuff right now.

Kind regards, Michael
