How do I install my product or mod into Microsoft Flight Simulator?

Some products include installers while others need to be extracted straight into the sim's Community folder. The location of that folder depends on how you installed the simulator.

Microsoft Store version

Steam version
%appdata%\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Community

If you installed the simulator to a custom location, you need to go to that location and look for the Community folder there. For example, if you installed it to D:\Games\MSFS, the Community folder is here: D:\Games\MSFS\Community

If your add-on doesn't appear installed, please consider using Simstaller or go down the path of further troubleshooting here: https://parallel42.com/blogs/wiki/my-sim-does-not-load-the-add-on-i-just-installed
