Microsoft has released a new update for Flight Simulator 2020 today, but I'm having an issue updating the game in Windows 11.

I've checked Microsoft Store app, but it doesn't say anything about the update.  It has just a "Play" button.

If I launch the game, it says there is a mandatory update and the game quits itself.

Please fix the update issue in Windows 11.

@MadMax72 Ditto. Come on - the reviews about the increased FPS sounds amazing so want to get back into it

@KiwiLip I played it yesterday for an hour or so. It is a vast improvement. I have a few Orbx scenery packs.  This killed fps. But it's much better now. Well, it was!

yeah the same here, except i did get the update option, but i just want to know why i have to update it again! i played for 40 minutes, thirty minutes ago, and now there is the update from the Microsoft store, which makes no sense because I already updated yesterday, so what's this one for, some one please tell me! 

FIX:
Rename the Directory where MSFS is installed (for me it's C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe), then click Uninstall in the xBox App, Change the install Dir back to original name, then click Install in the xBox App. Took just over 2 minutes from start to finish and I now have 1.18.14.0 installed
thank you so much! it worked for me.

@MadMax72How did you rename the directory ? I'm unable to do it with a message saying a program is using it eventhough I have restarted my computer twice and checked that no program is using it...

 

@MadMax72 

Thank you it worked for me too

@blutch32 

 

Same issue here...cant rename the directory... say its in use :(
After 2.5 hours of messing around rebooting, clicking on what everybody suggested...all of a sudden MSFS decided to update...

BAD BAD BAD implementation of the patch system. Rarely has any of my update for this product gone without some sort of incident. Wow... :(

 

Ok the mandatory update is not working folks. A multibillion-dollar company can do better. Get it together and send me a good update to fix those design issues. Be professional!@joonsim 

Same issue here. A New Mandatory Update is available. Please Update Microsoft Flight Simulator in Microsoft Store before launching-------- the Only option after is to hit OK and it takes you to the App Store and downloads you click updates but nothing happens

@MadMax72 Tried this, did not work for me :sad:, think I may have to roll back to W10...

To fix the issue I delete the game and installed it again. Now it is working (after few hours to download it again…)
I'm running Windows 11. I also had the Microsoft play store app appear and could not update MSFS 2020. I opened the Xbox app and found the update option for MSFS.

Same, re-installs no help, this broke right after the Windows 11 preview build update...@Troddin 

I ended up rolling back to windows 10 (rolled back extremely quickly) updated fine after that, I may try upgrading to 11 again now that flight sim has updated as it looked pretty cool
