    are you trying to install it from steam as a new installation?..... if that is the case you need to point the installation to one of your drives, by default it would be the C drive.... but you can point it to another drive if you like.... then it will take around 4 hours to install......

    Unzip the content, then move the content folder to your Community folder here:

    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community

    If you can't find the path above, the Community folder may be also located here:

    Hi,

    By default Steam is installed at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\

    The actual contents of the games are stored at C:\Program Files\Steam (x86)\SteamApps\Common\<GameName>

    The structure of the <GameName> folder will then follow that as set by the game producer and, in the case of FSX, this is where you will find the relevant folders...
