  1. Unable to install Minecraft game


    So i bought a copy of minecraft, and I saw that people are getting help for it here since microsoft owns it now. This is my only option left since the dedicated microsoft support staff for the game are ignoring my tickets and requests. I bought the game and it wont give it to me, I have all the proof of purchase, but it still says I have not bought it. I didn't buy it through the microsoft store, this is just my only option since the other support services only have bots.



    ***Original title: A microsoft purchase i made was not given to me***

    Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition: Unable to connect to world

    Hi Angelito,

    The game server error is one of the possible reasons why you're unable to connect to the Minecraft world. To help you resolve this concern, I need to gather more details. Kindly answer the questions below:

    • Were you able to connect to an external server on Minecraft before?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps you have done so far?
    • When did the issue start?
    • Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the game?
    • Do you have a firewall (or antivirus firewall)? If yes, try to disable it.

    Meanwhile, I suggest that you run the troubleshooter for Windows apps using the link below. This could help remove problems with an app from Microsoft Store.
