  1. Cannot download Minecraft

    I am running Windows 10, and when I go to install Minecraft, the Windows store pops up with an error message stating, "Reinstall the App The app can't start, reinstalling it should fix it. Code: 0x80073CFC." I'm installing it for the first time so what should I do?

    PS I checked and I have plenty of storage.

    Homegroup For Minecraft Servers Or What?

    It looks as if the existing minecraft server will use the new system without modification - It needs to be able to access the computers on the network in a two way link, which is the standard for Workgroup and Homegroup

    There is a complete step by step available, if you have any issues ...

    Tutorials/Setting up a server – Official Minecraft Wiki

    It's not something I have any direct experience with but a quick read suggests to me that you will not need to do Much if any reconfiguration of the existing server

    Windows 10 - Minecraft Download Issue


    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
    Method 2:

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


    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.
