Thread: MSFS installation problem

  1. #11

    Default

    Still trying to download and install MSFS, and the MS Store is still refusing to let me do it. This, despite the fact they acknowledge I am a verified MSFS Premium Deluxe owner and my designated computer and Local Drive C (32 GB memory and 1 TB SSD) is rated by the Store as "Status OK."

    I apologize if some feel I am "beating this issue to death." I just hope some MS people who can help me (and other MSFS buyers like me, who are experiencing a similar disappointment) will read this thread and make it possible for us to start enjoying the program again...

    I still wonder if I am the only one unable to download and reinstall the program. Has anyone on the Forum been able to reinstall MSFS recently?...I hate to think I'm MS's lone victim (LOL, kinda)...

    Additional suggestions and ideas always welcomed...Thanks in advance for any help...

    Hi Lee, just to confirm.. you are trying to download the standard version, yes?
    You always download this and get the additional (premium deluxe) content later, from the content manager

    Steve, thanks for the reminder. Yes, I am trying to download and install the MSFS standard version...In checking the other forums, I found a poster who said the MS Store required him to install Digital Ownership before they would let him install MSFS. I've tried doing that, but was rejected, just like with MSFS. Do you think it's wise to try to continue trying the install both programs? ...

    I'm being rejected for installation, with (error) "Code 0x80070424" being cited as a reason...I have submitted a number of "user problem" reports with the Store (MS?). The report forms all started with "Code 0x80070424," given by the Store...

    Any additional suggestions and ideas are always welcomed...Thanks in advance for all help...

    That code is a Windows 10 repair code. Have you updated Windows? Maybe your Windows 10 has become corrupted?

    Thanks Plainsman--I checked and my Win 10 is up-to-date... When asked, I also added several optional updates; all of which failed to satisfy the Store...

    The routine, after I click to "Retry installation of MSFS," is for the Store to indicate they are "Downloading," and then about 5 seconds later, say across the progress line (which never shows any progress), "Error - See details." Clicking that message produces the following: "Something Unexpected Happened" and the "0x80070424" error code. Also, a suggestion to either file an Error Report, or "wait a bit and try again." I've done both, quite a few times!...

    I wish you would tell me what you make of all this? And, thanks again for helping...

    Hi Lee, sorry I forgot to mention Digital Ownership. Yes, you download that as well.. or at least you’re supposed to. I dont know what to suggest at the moment though (currently at work) hopefully the errors won’t be too hard to fix.. but I don’t know how just yet

    Regards

    Thanks Steve. confirming the need to download and install Digital Ownership. I keep trying to install that and MSFS Standard version, but continue to be blocked by the Store. I sent another Error Report, saying my Win 10 was up-to-date and my computer system already approved. I don't know what else to do...

    I also called the Store (and MS) support phone number, but they do not seem to be allowing any "live" conversations with technicians--go to the web, they say...

    No one on the Forum has said they have tried lately to install MSFS. I don't know if the Store is installing now, or not. Are other players being turned away? Or, am I the only one?

    Anyway, I hate to see this thread drift away from lack of replies. I'm still hoping some MS people will read it and fix things so myself and those with the same problem get some help...

    I feel your pain. I started having issues about 3 days ago. I uninstalled last night and am downloading now. Did the reg version even though I have the Prem Deluxe. Im at 44.89gb downloaded and its only been 4 hours. I hope this fixes the problem.

    The only thing I did to my sim prior to all the issues was to download (from the content manager) the updated airport about 30 miles from Corcheavaul, France. After I did that it has been all downhill. Really a bit of a bummer since I had 400 hours logged.

    Time will tell....

    4 hours later and not much better. I was able to get to the main page and load up the Isafjodur landing challenge. It gets about 90% loaded and then CTD.

    So very frustrating!
