    Microsoft is making me re-purchase Minecraft?


    As a lot of Minecraft players know, there was an offer released a while ago by Mojang that gave certain Java players free copies of Minecraft Windows 10 up until April of 2020. I was one of those players, and got myself a copy. I was able to play on multiple platforms and downlod it since it was applied to my microsoft account. Though, as of recently, I bought a desktop and realized that Microsoft is making me pay for another copy, despite already having it downloaded on the same account, but on a different device also Windows 10. I tried to reach out to Mojang about this, but they said that it was a Microsoft problem. What do I do?

    :)

  2. 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.

  3. Purchase prompt for Minecraft Starter collection for PC.

    Hi Arsalan,



    Thank you for writing to Microsoft Community Forums.



    We understand your concern as you are getting a prompt to purchase Minecraft Starter Edition. In order to get clarity and to assist you accordingly, please reply with the answers to the questions below

    • Where did you redeem the code?
    • Where and when you are getting this purchase prompt?


    However, we would like to inform you that Minecraft Bedrock Edition is not available in Microsoft Store. In Microsoft Store you will have the Minecraft Starter and Master collection.



    If you have redeemed the code in Mojang website and installed the Bedrock edition from Mojang, then we will suggest you to reinstall the game from Mojang website and sign in with the same account, which was
    used for redemption.



    Minecraft Starter collection is all together a different game, which you have to purchase separately from Microsoft Store.



    I would also suggest you to contact the Mojang support team for further assistance on this issue.

    Microsoft is making me re-purchase Minecraft?

    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
