Hello I've the same problem which have some guys before me. Installer says no MSFS Installation is found.
Installer was run as admin and virus protection is turned off where the installer was saved.
Did you have a solution?
Kind regards Jens

The problem is caused by having installed MSFS 2020 with an user account, and trying to install the scenery using a different user account.

We updated the installer and current version tries to handle this case, and is searching for the MSFS preference files in all your user accounts so, be sure you are using the current version, which is dated November 30th.

If you still have the issue with the latest version, it's likely a permission problem with the other user account you installed MSFS from, which might be solved this way:

- log in with the user account you installed MSFS with

- Uninstall MSFS from that account

- log again with your normal user account and see if you can start MSFS, it should launch a short installation, and this should fix the missing settings file in your own account which caused the installer to fail to find the sim.

Well this does not work because the installing user was MSFS2020. I found a solution for that problem, your installer does not work correct in my case, please have a look at the attached log.
The solution in my case was to make a symbolic link between: C:\Users\MSFS2020\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\UserCfg.opt from M:\WpSystem\S-1-5-21-3480065646-2766658366-1087699166-1001\AppData\Local\Packages\Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalCache\UserCfg.opt
where my real installation is placed.
