    Install of MSFS2020 broken with cancelation of GamePass


    I have been playing MSFS2020 for a year (having bought deluxe edition from MS Store) and a couple of months ago started a trial of GamePass. After the trial period, i allowed it to expire as I did not find enough value for what i was playing to renew. However, since then, i have been unable to launch my (purchased) copy of Flight Sim. After an extended time researching why it would not open, i discovered the .EXE file (and folder) were on drive, but with file size of 0 bytes. Apparently the executable was 'toasted' with the end of the subscription. A similar action would have been expected for the Master Chief game obtained with the GamePass, but instead of bringing up a "can't find executable file" error, it says it needs the GamePass to run.

    I have gone to the MS Store to try repair/install the program but it won't work.

    What needs to be done to 'fix' my game? I really don't want to have to uninstall 130 GB of functional files and then spend another (better part of a) week downloading these same files in a clean/new install. (not to mention the hit to my i-net restrictions of throughput...i'm on fixed budget and don't have a fast/unlimited internet connection).

    Doing the application repair from the settings menu does not fix problem.

    Help/suggestions are appreciated.

    :)

    Install of MSFS2020 broken with cancelation of GamePass

    When you install Game Pass, all eligible titles are flagged as game pass, sometimes when you cancel game pass, these flags are not removed properly.

    Afraid you have to reinstall, sorry

    Which files do I copy to transfer Flight Simulator 2020 to another PC?

    Hi guys. So i've recently also wanted to copy over my MSFS2020 from my PC to my laptop and followed the instructions posted by DeckedBeret1566. I have copied the 'Official' and 'Community' folder from my PC (D:\Games\MSFS2020) to my laptop (C:\Games\MSFS2020).
    However when I select (C:\Games\MSFS2020) in the installer, it proceeds to download the entire game from scratch. Perhaps I am missing something?

    Can't access MSFS 2020

    Have you tried running a repair on it though as opposed to the reinstall? Certainly agree that Gaming Services is the fulcrum here as it does seem to be a dependency. Perhaps worth trying to get that re-installed independent of MSFS2020 first before attempting to reinstall MSFS2020?

    Xbox live canceled

    Gamepass Ultimate includes Xbox Live gold and Gamepass. So if you cancel Gamepass Ultimate you cancel your gold too.

    Can't cancel broken installation

    Fully remove the game. Saved data and all.

    Power cycle the console by holding down the power button for 10 seconds.

    Restart the console and reinstall the game.
