  1. OK, One more thing you might try is deleting your overall "Profile" file and let the Sim re-build it from scratch. The file is "....\Steam\userdata\<your Steam user number>\1250410\remote\profile_00" After deleting it, the sim will lead you through the initial setup screens you saw the very first time you ran it.
  2. Here is one more suggestion I gleaned from https://www.flightsimulator.com/known-issues/ Find your "UserCfg.opt" file (typically located in C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator). Open the file in notepad and verify that InstalledPackagesPath is set to the path where your packages are installed. Note: This is typically the last line in the file (e.g. InstalledPackagesPath "C:\Users\<UserName>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages") If not correct, edit the path and save the file then try starting the sim again.
  3. If you install MSFS via Steam, the controller profiles are located in: ...\Steam\userdata\[your Steam user number]\1250410\remote I don't know where they are located for a MS Store install but you could search for their names: Any personalized "Controller" profiles are stored in "inputprofile_xxxxxxxxxx" files (search for "inputprofile_ *"). They are XML files which can be edited using a text editor like notepad. In each file, near the top, will be the name you gave it when you created it in MSFS.
  4. Every time I exit MSFS by using the "Quit to Desktop" function from the Main menu, a "FlightSimulator.exe.[some number].dmp" file is created in C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\CrashDumps. An accompanying "FlightSimulator.exe" Application Error is recorded in Event Viewer. This occurs in both "Windowed" and "Full Screen" mode. When in "Windowed" mode, if I exit MSFS using the upper right "X" (Close window) button, no application error occurs and no ".dmp" file is created. So, check your "C:\Users\[user name]\AppData\Local\CrashDumps" directory for these .dmp files. You may want to clean them out. And, before it gets asked, this is still happening after installing Patch #1 ( - 9/2/2020). MSFS installed via Steam on a Windows 10 version 2004 system: i7-8700k @ 4.3 GHz 32 GB DDR4 RAM @ 3200 MHz 1070ti w 8GB VRAM 1920x1200 monitor.
  5. When you turn on "Developer" mode, it creates a very narrow black "Menu" bar at the top of the MSFS screen. When I first switched Developer mode on, I didn't immediately notice the bar and, like you, assumed it didn't do anything. In that Menu bar are various tabs, one of which is labeled "Options" and underneath that is a "Display FPS" option. When you turn that on you'll see that it is not the cause of the "Little Green Number". I agree with aktorsyl, that the number "looks a lot like Steam's fps counter. In the wrong place and doing weird things". You can turn off the Steam counter by: Exit MSFS; Maximize the Steam window and, in the upper left hand corner select "Steam >> Settings"; Then select "In Game" and set the "In-game FPS counter" to "Off". "OK" the "Settings" dialog; exit and restart Steam: and then restart MSFS. If the green number hasn't gone away, I'm stumped.
  6. I bought and installed MSFS via Steam and I do not have the "...\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe" folder either. I DO have a \Users\"Your ID"\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\ folder, under which all the packages (~100GB) are stored. The reason for not having a "...\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe" is it's one of the differences between installing from Steam and installing from the Microsoft Store. The MS Store installation will have it and the Steam will not have it nor does the Steam installation need it.
  7. First of all, the following info only applies to a Steam installation of MSFS. I don't know the file locations for a MS Store installation. After installing MSFS via Steam, the "Options" and "Personalized Controls" profiles are stored in the following location: ...\Steam\userdata\[your user number]\1250410\remote The "Options" file is named "Profile_00" and is a binary file. Deleting it will cause MSFS to rebuild it from scratch on the next startup. You could build several profiles by renaming them after being built. Then just copy the one you want to "Profile_00" before the next startup. Any personalized "Controller" profiles are stored in "inputprofile_xxxxxxxxxx" files. They are XML files which can be edited using a text editor like notepad. In each file, near the top, will be the name you gave it when you created it in MSFS. For reference, the "Default" controller files are located in: ...\Steam\steamapps\common\MicrosoftFlightSimulator\Input Also located in the "...\Steam\userdata\[your user number]\1250410\remote" directory are two files named "kh_logbook" and "datausage" which are binary.
