    Minecraft installation failure in the app Store in Windows 10


    I purchased "Minecraft for Windows 10 Starter Collection" today for my kid, but couldn't get it installed on my PC. It shows that "You own this game" in the Store. When I click the button "Install on my devices", it let me choose the PC. However after hitting "Install", I got a message that says "Thank you!We're attempting to install on your selected devices." Waited for hours, nothing happened. Gone through the process many times, still didn't have it installed.



    Second issue: there's only one device shown in the selection above, while I have another PC signed in with the same MSA in the Store but not shown in the selection. Tried signing out and signing in. Tried running the command: wsreset.exe. Nothing worked.



    Does anyone know these issues and can offer some help?



    Thanks!

    :)

    minecraft windows 10 edition. windows store.

    Thank you for the information. It seems that the system still detects the beta version you've first downloaded. For us to isolate the issue, we suggest that you uninstall Minecraft: Windows 10 Beta to your computer, and reset the Microsoft Store app by performing
    the following steps:

    • Press the Windows key on your keyboard, and then click the
      Settings
      icon.
    • Select System, and then select Apps & features.
    • Find the Store app, and then click on Advanced options.
    • Click Reset.
    • Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

    Once you're done, kindly sign in your Microsoft account again to the Windows Store app and try to install Minecraft: Windows 10.

    Do get back to us with the results. We'd be more than willing to provide you additional help.

  3. minecraft windows 10 not installing?

    Hi Xpsychonauticon,

    Thank you for posting your question in the Microsoft Community Forums.

    I can understand the situation must be difficult for you when the game doesn't get installed as it should.

    Please answer these questions to get clarity on this issue:

    1. Are you aware of any changes made to the PC prior to this issue?
    2. Is the issue specific to this game?
    3. Are you referring to Minecraft app from Windows Store?
    4. Are you able to install other apps from the Microsoft Store?
    5. Are you able to uninstall the app?

    However, let us follow these methods and check if that makes any difference.

    Method 1: If your answer to the Q-5 is No, then suggest you to follow the steps from this article to
