  1. I am unable to download a game i have purchased


    I bought a copy of Minecraft for Windows 10 and used it with my laptop for years. After a re-install of Windows 10 my Xbox live account and Microsoft accounts are fine and they recognise my device perfectly until I go to my Library, which knows that I own Minecraft, but has an exclamation mark next to it and won't let me install it on my devices because it says I don't have any applicable devices.

    :)
