installing fs 2020 from disk


Will I need a setup code for the disk MSFS version available at Amazon in the UK? I would be able to order it. I think my wireless speed is too slow for the download. And it would, be possible for me to have it shipped for not
unreasonable postage. But I am afraid it will not work for us. Please, advise.  Essentially, does the Aerosoft-supplied disc version of MSFS 2020 work in the USA?

To answer your query about the Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (MSFS 2020) disk version available at Amazon UK, you indeed will require a setup code, also known as the product key. This key is crucial for activating the software upon installation, regardless of whether you purchase it digitally or in a physical disk format.

Now, regarding your concerns about compatibility in the USA, the Aerosoft-supplied disk version of MSFS 2020 is designed to function globally, including the USA. While the disk version you mentioned is being sold by Amazon UK, the simulator's content and functionality remain identical across regions. Therefore, you should have no issues using the disk version in the United States.

For those with slower internet connections, opting for the physical disk version of the software can certainly be beneficial, as it allows you to bypass the need to download large files. However, keep in mind that even with the disk version, you will still need an internet connection for the initial activation using the product key, as well as for downloading any future updates and accessing online features such as real-world weather and air traffic.

In summary, you can confidently proceed with ordering the Aerosoft-supplied disk version of MSFS 2020 from Amazon UK. Just ensure that you receive a valid product key for activation, and you should have no issues using the simulator in the USA.

Safe flying and enjoy the immersive experience that MSFS 2020 has to offer! If you have any further questions or need assistance, feel free to ask.
