    My Minecraft Windows 10 can't download due to it being blocked.


    So, I was playing Minecraft, as I do, and all of a sudden a new update comes out 1.16.100. My friend and I share the same Microsoft account, and he managed to update it on his PC. However, when I tried to update it, it said that it was already updated, but it turns out it didn't. So, I tried uninstalling the app and it uninstalled. But when I tried to reinstall it, it blocked me from reinstalling it. If I press install on my devices and select my own PC, an error message pops up. I searched the internet for ways to solve it like turning off my antivirus, doing wsreset.exe, but nothing worked. Before this, everything worked fine and I was able to update the game. I also have auto-update turned on. Is there a problem with my Microsoft Store? I tried this on 2 different PCs and it still did not work. Thanks!

    Windows 10 - Minecraft Download Issue

    Hi,

    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
      Enter.
    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I would suggest you to disable Antivirus software/ Firewall and check if it helps.

    Warning:

    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.
