    It's in the folder you chose to install the Packages files (the 90 GB download). I changed mine, but I remember the default was in Appdata under your user folder. It's hidden, but you can open a file explorer window and in the address bar type %appdata% (with % signs) to go directly to it. Once there look for the FS folder (I can't remember where that is, but I think it's under Microsoft)

    It’s installed in a Microsoft apps folder which even as Administrator I cannot access. From what I googled getting access is somewhat technical. Stand to be corrected but I couldn’t access it.

    Can confirm they do work. These are some nice little grass strips out in the Polish country side. They are great for light aircraft.

    I eventually found it. What a complicated structure!!! When I installed I changed the drive to I: as I like to keep my C drive as clear as possible. The directory structure is WpSystem\S-1-5-21-703761411-2070736213-520474069-1002\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Official\OneStore. There will obviously be some slight differences in each instalaation.

    Question is, is it possible to simplify this?

    This might not be the case for everyone, I in fact do not even have a WpSystem Folder. Mine was in C:\Users\****\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Packages\Community.

    That link is from the shortcut I made to get to it faster. So if you can't find it you might want to try that location.

    Hi.I downloaded it and installed the package in the community folder, but I don't see anything different than stock. The airport EPKQ is not found.
    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    If you installed MSFS somewhere other than the default on C:, as I did (on H, I had to create the default path on C: to \Community (lots of examples everywhere). Then I put the new content in both the C:...\Community and my install's H:\...Community, and everything works fine.

    I'm putting the files in both places in case MS fixes this, plus I'm not sure about the pathing in the .json and other config files. So, I'm just playing it safe. But putting the files just in my H:...\Community folder didn't work at all.

    That is H:, a file path, NOT a smiley face!
