  1. Issue with downloading Minecraft

    A few months ago a friend from the US gave me a redeem code for Minecraft Win10 as he couldn't use it on his Mac. I used the code on the Microsoft store and received the game. As of late I was planning on selling my laptop so I uninstalled all apps ( including Minecraft ) but then after thinking about it I decided to hold off on selling it, now the problem is that after logging in with all the same accounts I cannot reinstall Minecraft via the Microsoft store, all it gives me is the option to buy the game again, which I don't have the cash for. Can anyone help me with this Problem?

    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.

    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
