How to Download Microsoft Flight Simulator Faster

If you are experiencing slow download speed when downloading Microsoft Flight Simulator, please do the following:

  1. In the Windows search bar, type Command and look for ‘Command Prompt’
  2. In the menu select “Run as administrator”
  3. Enter: netsh int tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
  4. Press enter

If this is not helpful for you, try steps below and you can download faster after complete them.

  1. Open Task Manager and click ‘More Details’
  2. Find the running instance of the MSFS Installer exe
  3. Right-Click on the installer exe and click ‘go to details’
  4. Right-Click again on the same instance and then set priority either to High or Realtime (Realtime is the most unstable but if you have newer hardware it should cope and allow the sim to download even faster than on the High setting).

We also recommend doing the following:

Close the app and restart it rather than letting it hang. Note: the download will resume from where it left off (you will not have to download from the start again)

Avoid using WiFi when updating. Try using an ethernet cable instead.

Turn off any security software that may be interfering (UAC, Antivirus, Firewall).

Change the installation repository (from C: to D: for instance) or try creating a new installation folder in the drive of your choice (for instance create “MSFS” in your C: drive)

    Thank you so much. I tried their admin CMD… nothing been looking all over for a fix. The task manager set to real time was the fix. 10× faster.
