The latest update success

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to mention that once again the sim update went flawlessly yesterday. This was one was rather large, but even with the 16 updates I also needed in the Content Manager it was completed in about 45 minutes without issue. So thanks Asobo/Microsoft. FWIW I bought my Deluxe version from the MS Store.

I second your comments. I got mine done this morning and it was flawless!

Mine was effortless as well 🙂

I hate to be a wet blanket, especially since this is the first time I have had a problem with an update, and even more especially because it's probably my fault.


I launched the sim this morning and was taken to an update screen.  It said it was downloading the update, but everything was zeroes: download speed, progress, etc.  I waited for some time, probably not long enough, and paused the update download.  Then I couldn't get it to restart.  I closed the download/update window and that shut down the game entirely.


When I tried again to launch the sim, from either the taskbar or my library in the Microsoft store, it takes me to a screen called "Gaming Services" in the Microsoft Store.  I haven't figured out that I can do anything from that screen.  Based on some information in the reviews of the Gaming Services app and an official Microsoft help site, I repaired Gaming Services, reset Gaming Services, and uninstalled and re-installed it, rebooting each time.  It didn't help.


Maybe someone here has a suggestion.  I bought the premium edition in the Microsoft Store when it was first released and have routinely updated it each time without problems.
