Marketplace Purchases - Disable Without Deleting?

Recommended Posts

I'm having some troubles loading a flight into/around Sydney.  I have Orbx Cityscape Sydney purchased and installed through the marketplace.  As it's several gigabytes in size, I was hoping to see a way to disable an add-on without deleting all the local files.  I am not seeing a way to do this, am I missing something?

If you can find it in your Packages folder, you can move the Cityscape folder out from there, and move it back later.

I believe it depends on your installation, MS Store vs Steam.  For my current MS Store installation it is in this folder:

C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache

They certainly made it easy, did they not?

Marketplace downloads are stored at the ...\LocalCache\Packages\Official\OneStore,  and the Addons Linkers deals with the Community folder.-
