    Minecraft for Windows not available on the Minecraft Launcher

    I've already downloaded and installed Minecraft for Windows from the Microsoft Store.

    I've also opened it (not from the Minecraft Launcher) and logged in to my Microsoft Account (the same one I'm using on my Minecraft Launcher).

    The game works perfectly fine. However, if I try to open the official Minecraft Launcher, the game is still marked as incompatible and it won't let me launch the game from there.

    I know I could just launch it without the Minecraft Launcher, but it'd be nice to be able to launch it from the Minecraft Launcher just like I would do it with Minecraft Java Edition.

    Is there a way to fix this?

  3. 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,

    New Minecraft Launcher Broken

    Hi SebJ1000 -

    I'm Kevin B., I do apologize for the inconvenience that you're experiencing right now, let me help you sort things out.

    When did the issue started? Are there any recent changes made on the computer before the issue started?

    It seems that the Minecraft Launcher that is pinned on the taskbar of your windows is redirecting you to the Microsoft Store when you try to open it.

    Try to remove the pinned launcher on your taskbar and change it with the one located on your Start menu. The one which contains the right icon

    Open the start menu and locate Minecraft Launcher

    Right click on the Minecraft Launcher and select More

    Select Pin to Taskbar

    If the option is missing, try to remove the one that is currently pinned to taskbar and try to redo the steps again

    This way, if the Minecraft Launcher pinned on the taskbar is broken or damaged, it will be replaced by a new one. Once the Minecraft launcher is pinned, try to open it and check if it shows the same issue

    Hope this will help and have a bless day!

    Thanks.

    Kevin B.
