    Unable to install Minecraft for Windows 10 from Microsoft Store


    I have just purchased the Minecraft Windows 10 Starter Collection and am unable to install it. When viewing the pack and/or the game itself from within my game library it appears as though i able able to download it how ever when I click the install button the install and '...' button disappear. The window has some times frozen up after clicking and other time the button just disappears and allows me to continue. However when I go to a different section in my library (eg 'ready to install') and then return to the "all owned" tab the install button has returned and nothing has happened. Neither the Game itself or the pack appear in my "ready to download" as well. Also when viewing the game directly from the store the it says "you own this game" and when I click install nothing happens. Before attempting some fixes the button was fully greyed out and not clickable. how ever now the install button is not greyed out but clicking it does nothing.


    that is the scenario and now onto the fixes i have attempted


    I have tried to go through the Xbox app (beta) to download it but when i attempt to do so it says i must install 'gaming services' and when clicked it appears to begin to have begun downloading but nothing changes the download doesn't actually start. so I assumed it was due to the Xbox up and attempted signing out and restarting both the app and my computer dozens of times. I then attempted the same for the Microsoft store dozens of times and nothing changed. I then followed the steps outlined in this video


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM-Jrr3WfI8


    it involves using the command msreset and typing setting changes into command prompt and power shell. even that didn't work.


    I am completely lost please help me.


    Also feel free to question my wording of certain sentences as it is currently 1am and I doubt everything I just typed makes sense.


    thank you for your time I hope the information provided is enough to describe my situation

    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
