  1. Trying to add a device to my account.


    I was trying to install Minecraft but I was getting a popup saying "you don't have any device associated with this account"; however I was able to see it under my account. I followed some other indications to overcome this problem without luck, so I decided to delete the device from my account in order to re-add it and see if that would fix it.

    Now I am struggling to add it again.

    Everywhere I just read that to add a device you have to:

    "Select Sign in with a Microsoft account instead"

    However I don't have this option, because I am, indeed, already using a Microsoft account. I am of the impression that once you have deleted a device you cannot add it again. Is this some kind of bug?

    Deleting my account and adding it again is not an option. I just want to add a device to my account.

    Any help is much appreciated.

    :)
