    Yes i new that was possible but what I was getting at I found it was better to install the sim on a dedicated drive away from the operating system if that makes sense.
    Kind regards

    I bought MSFS Premium Deluxe from the MS Store during the early purchase period. Before then I was flying Prepar3d v5.1. I have been flying the Microsoft Sims since MS95. I've been building my own Sim rigs since 1997. My system now: AMD 2700, 32GB ram, 2070GPU. WIN 10 20H1. Not top of the line, but no slouch. ALL apps and Windows kept up to date. Few problems with MSFS, even when others have had problems. However, like the OP. this last update to SU5, which I attempted after Windows update 07/27/21, I couldn't even load the Sim. Which had worked flawlessly before the WIN updated. It would just go to the Store. Period. now, the Store won't even update. So, those who are not having problems, great, but don't say just because you aren't, don't assume others aren't.

    Back in March or whenever it was that most people's FPS dropped into single figures, everyone with top end systems were saying "no problems here" and posting screenshots all over the place showing their 50-60fps over New York on Ultra. The boot's on the other foot now, which proves that what goes around, comes around.

    It think the goal should have been for the boot's to be on both feet

    As a matter of fact, I am getting 50-60 FPS over New York (and London, Paris, and San Francisco) on Ultra, post-SU5. Before SU5, I was gettiing 30-35 in those places. Good computer, but not what I would call high-end.

    Be thankful you got your Alienware. I tried to get an Area 51 top end they had advertised. They pulled a bait and switch, so I cancelled my order and got my liquid cooled system I have now. It was a nightmare going through alienware, I'll never buy anything from them again, and had one of theirs once already. But the way they were with this last sale, sadly not at all. I'm sticking with Thermaltake from now on.

    I went through Origin and have basically the same system as yours except for a 10900k on the cpu. They took forever but I am glad I went with them. Having built my on rigs in the past I went through it with a fine tooth comb and could not find a single build flaw. They even did a burn in and set the bios up correctly. Even if I had been a noob there would have been no problem. Literally plug and play

    It's not about anything we "read on the internet." This is from experience and mostly from people on forums like this that have experienced the same issues, no matter what kind of PC they have. MSFS2020 is chocked full of issues. I'm glad it works for you but you are one person and actually in the minority.
