  1. I can't install Minecraft


    I was running Minecraft OK.
    I signed up for the Beta to see the RTX version.
    Instead of the RTX version, I got 1.16.
    I couldn't get anything other than 1.16, no matter if I selected the RTX version 1.15, or even if I unenrolled from the Beta program.
    I tried various combinations of steps over a 48 hour period. Many, many reinstalls of Minecraft, restarting PC, re-enrolling in the Beta etc.
    I gave ownership of WindowsApps folder to Administrators in order to delete Minecraft 1.16.
    I then gave ownership of WindowsApps folder to NT Service\TrustedInstaller, hoping that's who is meant to have it.
    Minecraft would not install.


    I then followed the following steps ...

    1. Open MS Store > Click on your profile picture on top right and sign-out. Then sign-in again.

    2. Run Windows App Troubleshooter
    Windows Key+X > Click Settings > Click Update & security > Click Troubleshoot > Scroll down to the bottom > Click Windows Store Apps > Click Run the Troubleshooter

    3. Reset Windows Store through Command Prompt
    Type cmd in Windows Search box > Right click on Command Prompt > Run As Administrator > Type WSreset.exe and click Enter > Reboot your computer

    4. Re-register All Store apps
    Right click on Windows Start > Right click on Windows Powershell Admin > Copy the following from below and right click in Powershell to paste > Enter > Restart your computer

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$$_.InstallLocation\AppXManifest.xml"}

    5. Uninstall & Reinstall Store
    Right click on Windows Start > Right click on Windows Powershell Admin > Copy the following from below and right click in Powershell to paste > Enter

    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *WindowsStore* Remove-AppxPackage

    Copy the following from below and right click in Powershell to paste > Enter > Reboot your computer

    Get-AppxPackage -allusers *WindowsStore* Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$$_.InstallLocation\AppXManifest.xml”}

    Minecraft does not install with an error .. Code: 0x80070003

    I did successfully install another app from the store without issue.

    :)

    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

  3. Minecraft Got Deleted After Clean Installating Windows 10 And Again Minecraft Purchased.

    Hi,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    I think you did a Clean Installation of Windows 10 and Clean Installation will delete all your applications; games; and your user data such as music files, video files, pictures, documents, etc.



    In order to get clarity on this issue and assist you with appropriate troubleshooting steps, please reply with the answers to the questions below.



    1. From where did you purchase the Minecraft game?
    2. Have you already installed Minecraft on your Windows 10 computer?


    If you have purchased several copies of Minecraft from Mojang, then I suggest you to refer the
    Mojang refunds policy and check their refund policy.



    If you have purchased Minecraft from Microsoft Store, then I suggest you to refer
    Returning items you bought from Microsoft Store for exchange or refund
    and check if you can get a refund.



    If you have purchased Minecraft from Oculus, then I suggest you to
    Contact the Oculus Support Team
    and they will help you with this.



    Please feel free to contact us back, in case you have any other questions/issues with Windows in future.

    Thank you for your response. For existing owners of Minecraft on PC, you need to install the Minecraft Windows 10 Edition and get a prepaid activation code for free from Mojang, the game developer by following the steps below:

    • Sign in to your Mojang account on this
      link
      .
    • Under Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition, select the link to request a code. The Windows 10 Store will open.
    • You will be able to download the game for free once you redeem the code.

    If you have any other queries, feel free to contact us anytime.
