    gift code region

    I bought a "Minecraft for Windows10"-gift and send the code to my gf, but she is in another region and cannot activate it.

    Error Message:



    Is there any way to change the code's region or exchange the code for one that works in another region, if so, where do i do that?

    I coudnt find any information for this on the internet.

    What i did find is that you can change the region in the windows 10 settings, i tried that without success.

    Any help is welcome.

    might resort to redeeming the code and buy it on the targeted account itself...

  4. gift code region

    Gift card code region error

    I am trying to redeem a $25 voucher from nokia through the gift voucher app, but when I input the code for redemption I first get the value in NT (1000NT) before I get the error:


    I get the statement that my gift card code does not match the country or region of my account. I do not live in Taiwan so I do not know why I am getting the value in NT. And I do not live in the US either. Does anyone know how I can work around this?
