    Cannot download Minecraft onto PC running Windows 10 Home


    I have purchased the windows 10 edition of minecraft from the MS store. When I try to install it, my PC is not recognised on the available devices, only my xbox. However my PC is recognised alongside my xbox in the list of MS registered devices - two of 10.


    I am running the latest version of Windows 10 Home edition and have the latest Java update installed.


    Any help would be appreciated.


    Regards

    Windows 10 - Minecraft Download Issue

    Hi,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you have an issue with downloading Minecraft application.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    To understand the issue better, I would need more information from your end.

    • Are you trying to install Minecraft application from Windows Store?
    • Do you get any error message?

    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:

    1. Corrupt Windows Store cache.

    2. Conflict between third party applications.

    If you are facing this issue while downloading Minecraft from Windows Store, I suggest you to try these steps:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to reset Windows Store Cache and check if it helps.

    • Press Windows + R keys to open run box.
    • Type WSReset.exe and hit
      Enter.
    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I would suggest you to disable Antivirus software/ Firewall and check if it helps.

    Warning:

    1) Please make sure to re-enable Antivirus software after performing troubleshooting steps.

    2) Antivirus software/ Firewall can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you shouldn't disable or uninstall your antivirus software. If you have to temporarily disable or uninstall
    it to install other software, you should re-enable it as soon as you're done. If you're connected to the Internet or a network while your antivirus software is disabled or uninstalled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with an updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

  4. Cannot download Minecraft onto PC running Windows 10 Home

    No download link for minecraft for windows 10 on the windows store page.

    Hi,

    Players who already have the previous PC or Mac edition of Minecraft (running on Java) can download Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition for free. To download the game, you'll
    need to get a code from Mojang, the game developer, by signing in to your
    Mojang account before attempting to redeem your code for Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition. Otherwise, you may incur a charge.

    To get your code from Mojang you may follow the steps below:

    • Sign in with your
      Mojang account
      .
    • Under Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition, select the link to request a code. Microsoft Windows 10 will open.

    The code you receive from Mojang will be kept on your account, in case you’re unable to redeem it straight away, or in case you have problems trying to redeem it in Microsoft Store.

    For more information about Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition, you may visit this

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
