    Clean up Flight Simulator 2020 packages on PC

    Hello, how are you? Hope you're well. My name is Mateus. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    First, welcome to the Xbox community. In Microsoft Flight Simulator forums I found discussions that talk about it, players report that when deleting these files the game may present performance problems or maybe not open due to the message ''you are missing packages that are essential to run Microsoft flight simulator please update the application and try again'' is not information confirmed by the developer, they are just player reports.

    This information can be found at the link below.
