The Rolling Cache and new scenery installations

Recommended Posts


anecdotal evidence is suggesting that the "rolling cache" can contain data which,

when combined with the installation of a new airport, cause either anomalies or a CTD.


It is also the case that the content.xml file is only updated to add products, it does not

update when a product has been removed.


The recommendation is therefore that before attempting to use a newly installed scenery

product, both the rolling cache and the Content.xml file are deleted.


Note: for the Microsoft Store version of MSFS default location of the Content.xml file is 

C:\Users\your name\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\Content.xml.


Please note:

If you cannot see the appdata folder, you may need to enable "Show hidden files, folders and drives" in your

Windows File Explorer view settings.

The Steam version is C:\Users\Your name\appdata\roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Content.xml

Other versions of MSFS may have the Content.xml file in a different location.
