Questions about this update, 

DOWNLOAD INSTRUCTIONS:

1.Some packages in your community folder may not have been updated and, as a result, may have an unexpected impact on the title’s performance and behavior. Please move your community package(s) to another folder before updating.

2.Open the Microsoft Store or Steam application (whichever you use to play the sim) and download the launcher update for the sim. More in-depth guide here.

Is this for all updates and if so once removed and updated do I put it back in. Right now all that's in there are liveries.

Don't I already have this launcher from when I originally installed the product. I always install these updates in game.

Thanks for any input on these points.

The launcher (in the MS Store, or on Steam) always updates with a new release. At least it has so far. You may not notice though, if you have auto update enabled for the store.

Every update seems to break some Addon content (remember, this is Microsoft...). Sometimes it just stops working, sometimes it causes a crash. Received wisdom these days is to empty your community folder, do the update, then gradually reintroduce stuff and see what breaks.

Thanks Tim, one would think based on the content of the update that MS would have an idea of what could cause a conflict but like you said it's MS. 

I do miss the FSX file structure and how to add the different addons, I do understand that this is a new sim but what were they thinking, lol.

I had issues with this update. I emptied my Community folder before doing the update then i reinstalled my content of the folder back in. In my case i was getting all the third party aircraft causing a CTD on loading them, so that is to say my Carenado, Just Flight and Milviz aircraft.

After many attempts to rectify this i was giving up. I then read on the official MSFS forums that if Developer mode is on in the sim that is the probable cause. I know i had it set to on so i then set it to off and exited the sim. I uninstalled the mentioned aircraft and then reinstalled them and they all now work. I never had any issue before with developer mode on. 

I believe that there is now another MFS update at the time of writing this so i will go check it out.

Mostly the issues seem to be around the various GPS / aircraft 'fix' mods, which cause aircraft to crash when the sim is updated. Usually there's an update for them within a day or three, but you do need to remove the extant versions if you don't want to crash.
