    Minecraft installer will always get the same message every time I try to install the launcher


    Minecraft installer will always get the same message every time I try to install the launcher, looks like something went wrong, we arent able to install the ap unknownAppInstall please make sure you are signed into the windows store, and use windows update to ensure that your computer is up to date, I have confirmed that I am signed in and that my windows is updated but the issue persists. I cannot get the launcher through the Xbox App on my laptop because the Xbox app wont even let me search for any games, and the Minecraft launcher is not in it, despite being on the microsoft store online,

    :)

    Unable to install Minecraft Java and Minecraft Launcher

    You can try the following steps and see whether it helps. These steps should help you perform a clean install of Minecraft.

    - Uninstall the Minecraft launcher from the Settings.

    - Deleted all files located at C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\([Your User Name] is the part you should replace with your user name.)

    - Uninstall the Xbox App (Find it in add or remove programs setting and uninstall) and reinstall it again.

    - Download the launcher and try installing Minecraft Java Edition.

  4. Minecraft installer will always get the same message every time I try to install the launcher

    Problem with the minecraft launcher.

    Hi mineblokkies,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    There are many reasons why you can't log in to Minecraft Launcher, but all of them are due to Microsoft Store and related services. I will provide several methods to try to solve this problem, please refer to the following steps for operation:

    • Clear the cache on Microsoft Store.
    1. Press the Windows logo key + R, type wsreset.exe, and select OK.
    2. After a few seconds a blank command prompt window will appear, which will disappear after about ten seconds and the Microsoft Store will open automatically.This means the cache was cleared successfully.
    • Make sure you're using the Microsoft Store Install Service.
    1. Services.msc can be found by pressing Windows Key + S and typing services.msc.
    2. Locate and double-click the Microsoft Store Install Service; if the status is Running, right-click it and select Restart.
    3. Change it to Automatic if it's disabled, then click Start and OK.
    • Reinstall the Microsoft Store app
    1. Press Windows key + X

      Click and Run Windows PowerShell(run as Administrator)Copy and paste the command below then hit Enter:

    • Reinstall the Minecraft Launcher
    1. Click Start >Settings >Apps,find "Minecraft Launcher" in all apps.
    2. Click on the "Minecraft Launcher" Advanced options >Uninstall the application.
    3. Open the Microsoft Store, search for "Minecraft Launcher", download and install it again, and log in to your account to see if it works.
    There are many steps, please try them all. Your patience and cooperation are highly appreciated.

    Best Regards,
