Thread: How to re-install MSFS 2020

  1. #11

    Default Reinstall problem

    After about 3 months of use my copy of MSFS 2020 stopped running. The icon on the task bar disappeared. Under AllApps the MSFS was grayed out. I uninstalled it and reinstalled it. The moment the installation was complete it asked for my code. Immediately after I entered it, the program stopped running. I still have the grayed out icon on the task bar but no running program.

    Did you buy the sim from MS Store, Steam or some other source?

    Default Formatted my hard disk

    I had MSFS 2020 installed but had to format my hard disk for other reasons.
    How can I re-install it? My Microsoft order history just says completed!

    You need launch the MS Store and you should see the available downloads. Press the Windows key and type “store” and it should come up. At the top right of the store you should see “downloads” (or available downloads.. something like that anyway)
    You need to download the standard edition and also digital ownership. You launch the sim & after asking where you want to install it, it will download the main part (110gb+) it may take a while.
    When it’s eventually done, you go into the content manager within the sim & download any additional stuff (like the deluxe or premium deluxe parts, should you have bought them)
