    Error code when trying to start MSFS

    Hi George, my name is Rodrigo. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    I am sorry to hear it.

    Have you tried to run a system scan?

    Open the Terminal window by pressing the Windows Key + X and Select "Open Powershell as Administrator".

    Type this command: sfc /scannow

    Press Enter.

    If any error is found, they will be patched.

    Then use the DISM command.

    Open the Terminal window by pressing the Windows Key + X and Select "Open Powershell as Administrator".

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Let me know if it works!

    Flight Simulator 2020. The content access server not available

    I had the same problem. It worked after I started MSFS with XBOX app and when I got the error switched back to XBOX app, logged out, not closed, and switched back to MSFS and tried again.

    Microsoft flight simulator 2020 crashes while loading

    When i start MSFS 2020 the blue bar appears, when it's half loaded, the game closes suddenly and goes to desktop no fault code.

    0x800701b1 in Gaming Services UI when launching Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    I have the same problem and it has appeared on 2 of my machines. When it appeared on the first machine using Windows 11 I was able use MSFS by starting in Admin mode. I moved to the second machine using Windows 10 MSFS started normal but crashed to desktop 5 minutes into the game. When I restarted I got the same error screen and the 1st machine. Again I can start in Admin mode but not in normal mode.
