Flight Simulator 2020 (Press any key to start)

Flight Simulator 2020 I open it and at the start it says "Press any key to start" and I press a key and it just flashes and says the same message again and it just keeps happening no matter what key I press or how many times I keep trying.

yes same issue..uninstalled the loader...ran as admin..get the screen with Daher plane with the press any key to start and the buffer wheel circles then crashes out to desktop...at my wits end.. so frustrating..one would have thought that this issue would have presented itself and been resolved prior to release...

I managed to get it going by installing from the XBox app. The app installs the base app and begins downloading the assets, 90 odd GB worth. The download hangs at 3.4GB with the error "something went wrong with the download, see 423" every time! This is taking me hours of troubleshooting.

Every time I press to start key it tells me to insert disc. I paid for the deluxe edition but it will not let me play the game

I was stuck on the black screen loop "press any key..."
Fixed by installing the XBox (beta) app from store... that did the authentication and starts the install process..

(i uninstalled the Xbox app from my win10 machine... never used it... but needed for FS 2020)

had the same problem, the issue is that you need to be logged in on your xbox account on the xbox app before you start up the game.

IM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM!!!!!!!! I DONT BELIEVE!!!!!!! IT A JOKE

As with many things in life right now, nothing is for certain and while we should not be having these issues (and others being reported) I urge you to be patient and think with a cool head.  From what i can see the solutions being offered here are working (they did for me) but it took some patience to be able to figure it out.   Lets not forget that this is day one for the launch, I am sure several of these minor inconveniences will be solved in the near future.   In the mean time fix yourself up a nice drink or some coffee and sit back and watch that progress bar fill up slowly with great anticipation and content.
