I've decided I'll just purchase from Areosoft. I've watched a lot of YouTube reviews and this looks like a must have for VR simmers in particular.
I was wondering if the external installer might be an issue for the Marketplace. Honestly though, something like this should have been included in the base sim. Maybe you should look into the Partner Program to see what is possible?
Just applied. They have a serious problem. I have Office 365 and a large Azure account and the site would not let me create an account, since it is not connected to those accounts. Had to use a seperate e-mail address, etc. PAIN.
Yes, Microsoft's consumer support can leave a bit to be desired at times. Maybe they'll allow you to link accounts at some point in the future?
To improve performance (and reduce headaches) I'm on a personal quest to minimize clutter in my community folder as much as possible. It looks like Sim EFB community folder presence will have minimal to nil impact, but I may repurchase it from the Marketplace anyway if you can pull this off!
Good luck with your Partner Program application and please let us know how you make out with it.
