    Minecraft windows 10 cannot install or launch game


    I bought Minecraft before 2018 so I got a free code to redeem Minecraft for Windows 10 and it worked. But now when I go to the Minecraft app it doesn't let me install it or launch it. It just says I have to buy it or start a free trial. I am really confused about this. Also, I already have Minecraft installed because I bought the minecraft.net version so can I have 2 accounts then?

    :)

  3. Minecraft: "Install this game on up to ten Windows 10 devices."

    Hi,

    Issues with downloading the Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition may occur if you are logged in to a different account. To resolve your concern, we suggest that you check your purchase history on the

    Microsoft Billing page
    if the Minecraft is on the list. You can also check it on the Windows Store if it is listed under
    Games in My Library. If the game is on the list, you have to use your Microsoft account to sign in on the PC instead of the local account. To add your Microsoft Account, you may follow the steps below:

    • Press Start and click on the Settings icon.
    • Go to Accounts and click Email & App accounts.
    • Click on Add an account and add the Microsoft Account that you used to purchase the game.
    • Restart your computer for the changes to take effect.

    After restarting your PC, reset the Windows Store to clear the Store cache.

    • Press Windows key + X on your keyboard.   
    • Click on Command prompt (Admin).   
    • Type wsreset.exe, and then hit Enter.   

    Launch the Windows Store and open the game library. If you see Minecraft on the list, look for the download icon

    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

    fix problems with apps from Microsoft Store
    . Once the steps are done, remember to restart the PC.

    Method 2: To uninstall the app that is downloaded from the Microsoft Store, refer to the steps from this article.
