MSFS can't open after Windows 11 upgrade

Recommended Posts

Just upgraded to Windows 11. When I attempt to run MSFS I get the message "Microsoft Flight Simulator can’t open because it is offline. The storage device might be missing or disconnected."


When I originally installed MSFS I installed it to my G: drive instead of C: because I wanted it and all related apps/data/etc. to be on a separate drive. Did the upgrade somehow change the starting location? The MSFS icon properties shows the correct file (I think) as the target (MicrosoftFlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe!App). However, it does not specify a drive or any other path information. Could that be the problem? I've searched a little but cannot find a workable solution.


Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

Since the update went live on Friday, the servers have been hammered with people. Some are getting (while flying) that the server is offline, and then get reconnected. Not sure if this is related to you??
