Stripr Compatibility - MS Store

Did you install MSFS a long ago? You sim might be installed the old (legacy) way.

Stripr REQUIRES a "modern" MS Store installation.

All newer MS Store purchases place core games files (including FlightSimulator.exe) outside of a previously encrypted ecosystem. Let's call these "modern" installs. This change happened back with the introduction of the Xbox app into our ecosystem.

How to check?
  1. Open the Xbox App on Windows.
  2. Find and open the MSFS product page from "My Library"
  3. Click the 3 dots next to the green Play button.
  4. Click on "Manage".
  5. Under "General", look for a section called "Advanced management features".
    • if you DO see it, you have a Legacy (Encrypted) install.
    • If you DON'T see it, you have a Modern (Unencrypted) install.

Legacy installs can be converted to modern.

How do I convert my install?
