Useful to mention where MSFS2020 was purchased from?

Recommended Posts

There are so many posts with various CTD issues, files missing etc. Then there are posts from others who say, "I've got no problems" (I'm one of those). I'm wondering if it would be useful to note when you post whether you got the sim from Steam or the MS Store.


A week or so before the sim came out I saw some YouTube comments about people preferring Steam to the MS Store, so that's where I got mine. The download & install went great and I've had no CTD issues.

I don’t think it’s relevant. CTD’s are more likely to be down to other things.. like USB conflicts.. drivers..hardware,, etc. Not to mention the odd bug in the sim itself.

i used steam everything went great but about a 2 weeks later or so i had a problem with my motherboard. After replacing it with the same one i was no longer able to run fsm. I uninstalled it and then the problems started, it would not download again. So after a week or so and back and forth with steam we could not fix it, i got so fed up i went to the ms store and downloaded it and repaid for it and its been working ever since.

Meanwhile steam would not refund my money they say it went past the return date, even though there is proof of tech problems from week 2 they wont refund it....
