    unable to install minecraft


    I purchased the PC version of the Minecraft.I am able to locate my PC under My Devices, however, Minecraft install is not finding my device. The message when I select 'Install on my Device' is: "It looks like you don’t have any applicable devices linked to your Microsoft account. To install, sign in on a device with your Microsoft account."I've reset the Microsoft Store cache, restarted the PC, my windows is up to date and now I'm stuck. Please advise. Thanks,

    :)

    Homegroup For Minecraft Servers Or What?

    It looks as if the existing minecraft server will use the new system without modification - It needs to be able to access the computers on the network in a two way link, which is the standard for Workgroup and Homegroup

    There is a complete step by step available, if you have any issues ...

    Tutorials/Setting up a server – Official Minecraft Wiki

    It's not something I have any direct experience with but a quick read suggests to me that you will not need to do Much if any reconfiguration of the existing server

    Unable to open Minecraft

    Hi,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    • Are you using Minecraft app downloaded from Store or Minecraft program?
    • Do you receive any error?
    I suggest you to uninstall and reinstall Minecraft and check if that fixes the issue.

    Also try to download and install the display and chipset drivers from the manufacturer website.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please do let us know if you need further assistance, we’ll be glad to assist you.
