  1. MSFS does not save settings


    MSFS (Standard Edition) is not saving settings. Each time the program is started, it behaves as if it is being run for the first time.

    In order to try to solve the issue, I did a complete uninstall (removed all traces of it on disk) and then reinstalled. This did not solve the problem. The Community directory is empty, so it is not a problem with an add-on. All activity is performed through the Xbox PC application.

    The installation on my laptop does not exhibit this problem. I would expect that settings would be synchronized to the cloud, but evidently this is not happening on my main rig.

    Thanks in advance for all suggestions,

    My rig:

    Intel i5-11600K

    Asus Z590 TUF Gaming

    32 GB memory

    EVGA NVidia RTX 3070

    :)

    Thanks for the extra feedback Joel, did you already leave the flight sim insider program? Please double check that

    Maybe the game still thinks that you're on it

    If yes, let's try something different.

    Create a new local admin user on your PC and try running the game from there and test how it goes:

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.
    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today despite this Joel

    Is your other PC on Windows 10 or 11?
    If you try with a different game pass game, the issue persist or its only with Flight Sim?

    Besides reinstalling the game, which troubleshooting steps you have done so far to fix this problem?
    In that way I can advise you different things or how to proceed

    I'll be waiting for your reply, greetings from another Microsoft user

    Josef,

    My desktop rig, where the problem manifests itself, is Window 10. It works as expected on my Windows 11 laptop.

    I have tried turning off the firewall, which had no effect.

    I have looked at the Event Viewer and see nothing of interest.

    This started when I signed up for the Xbox Insider Program and, with that, installed the Beta of the upcoming release (I wanted to see the effect of DLSS). I then uninstalled the beta and reinstalled the current production bits. That is when the problem began.

    And that is why this morning I did a complete uninstall. I deleted the Official and Community folders. I also confirmed that the data residing in my AppData/Local and Roaming directories had been deleted. I did not examine the registry for any leftover keys, so perhaps there is something in there that is causing the misbehavior.

    Thanks again for your assistance!

    Unable to launch Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    Encountered this issue this morning - annoying! I found a solution that worked for me and saved me from having to redownload entirely.

    Go to Windows Settings > Apps > Reset and Repair MSFS. This will remove the icon from Xbox Game Pass so 'install' MSFS on Xbox Game Pass again, but selecting the install path the game was on will trigger the actual file repair.

    The game should then just run as per normal.
