  1. Why will Minecraft Launcher not work when I download it fresh?


    I recently got a new computer and completely set it up and went to download Spotify and iTunes from the Microsoft store and couldn't due to an error with the code 0xC0EA000A. I tried MSReset and MSreset -i and neither of them worked to resolve the issue until I was told to simply sign out of the store and sign back in. When I did so it seemed to work all of a sudden and so I moved on. Well, now no matter where I download the Minecraft Launcher, from the Microsoft Store or Minecraft.net, it will not open.

  2. 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,

    Why will Minecraft Launcher not work when I download it fresh?

    Unable to install Minecraft Java and Minecraft Launcher

    You can try the following steps and see whether it helps. These steps should help you perform a clean install of Minecraft.

    - Uninstall the Minecraft launcher from the Settings.

    - Deleted all files located at C:\Users\[Your User Name]\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\([Your User Name] is the part you should replace with your user name.)

    - Uninstall the Xbox App (Find it in add or remove programs setting and uninstall) and reinstall it again.

    - Download the launcher and try installing Minecraft Java Edition.
