Required update doesn't download/install

Recommended Posts

Haven't flown MFS for a few days, and tried to today. I clicked on the icon as usual, and the program started to load (the calm music and graphics, etc) then it stops and a screen abruptly appears saying that there is a required update. So I click on install and am taken to the MS Store, but no further guidance what to do. Can anyone help me?


My system specs: Intel i9-10850@3.6 - 5.2 GHz, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, 32GB  DDR4  RAMNoctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler,1TB Seagate SSD, 4TB Seagate HD, Windows 10.     Sims: MSFS2020      Preferred Aircraft JF Arrow. Nothing much else GA to choose from.

in the app store  there are 3 versions of MSFS listed.   If you have more than the basic version, then all you will see is a play button and you will go through it all again.  Change the selection to the basic version and it should download the update.

This has happened previously for those with non-basic versions and it's frustrating because  the update remains hidden on the more expensive versions.

When you select the basic version,  it should start downloading the update itself.

When you get back into game.. check to make sure there are no content manager updates.
