Since my Gaming Services app in in an install loop, and my free Game Pass subscription ends tomorrow, I will have to try a Windows Reset before installing the Premium Deluxe version for which I have bought a code from Amazon (i.e. I have not bought an upgrade through the Game Pass version). I've been on Windows version 1909 without problems until now but I will try upgrading to version 2004 before the reset, just in case that solves my issues (which include a number of previous system updates failing to re-install after I tried a System Restore). So, what is the best procedure? 1) What should I back up? So far: Community Folder, Flight Plans. Anything else? 2) What will happen to my progress/game save? MSFS is linked to the user's MS account, but will a fresh install link to my current installation's profile/game save or only start a new profile, losing my 198hrs logged time and achievements? 3) What should be my workflow? Obviously, backing up what I can from #1 above before anything else. Then probably resetting Windows and hopefully finding I can still access current MSFS installation again (Perhaps having to re-install it, depending on what the Windows reset does to it). But what then? Do I completely uninstall the Game Pass game, and does it prompt me to keep my saved progress? And will I then be able to link my new install to that save? My main concern is retaining my progress, I don't think it will be too hard to sort out my settings as I haven't made dramatic alterations since installation. Best advice from anyone who has taken that route from Game Pass version to full (non-Game Pass) version would be appreciated. No 'best guesses' please.🙂 Thank you. (Hopefully I can turn this into a useful entry for Tips and Tricks if I get a successful transition between installations).
