Installation can get complicated while downloading when there is 3.68 GB left to download. It turns out that in some cases it keeps decompressing certain files and never finishes .

Fixing the error

Well, if when trying to install the game the installation stays at, "Please wait ... 3.68 GB remaining" , you can try the following. What the method you will see below does is delete a series of files. These files are those that your computer tries to unzip without success , preventing the installation from proceeding.

  • You have to close the Microsoft Flight Simulator installer.
  • Open the file explorer and go to the folder: C: \ Users \ USERNAME \ AppData \ Local \ Packages \ Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe \ LocalCache \ Packages \ Official \ OneStore –if you bought the game from the Microsoft Store–. By the way, turn on hidden items to see all folders . In the file explorer you have to click on View and you will see that there is an unchecked box that says, Hidden elements .
  • Delete all files fs-base-cgl-0.1.21.fspackage.NNN and fs-base-cgl-0.1.21.fspatch .
  • Open Microsoft Flight Simulator again and the installer will redownload the files you just deleted. In the beginning, when it comes time to decompress these files, everything should go well.
The installer appears to hang when trying to unzip the fs-base-cgl. This file is about 56 GB in size and divided into 2 GB chunks . However, at no time does a warning appear saying that the installer is blocked.
