  1. Can not download Minecraft Java Edition--keeps getting hung up on wanting me to sign into...


    I purchased Minecraft Java Edition on our PC for my son and followed the steps to download it, but it keeps stopping at this "Please sign into the Microsoft Store" error message. (see first screenshot below) But I AM signed in (as you can see if the upper-right corner of the Microsoft Store page). I clicked "TRY AGAIN" and checked the "I have read and accept the Microsoft Software License Terms" (see second screenshot below) and clicked "INSTALL", and it takes me right back to the same error screen (see third screen shot with this actual "Ask a Question" message in the background that I'm currently typing). Whenever I click on "Click here to sign into the Microsoft Store", it just shows a popup telling me what account I've added to this app, which is the same one I'm currently signed into the Microsoft Store with (see the small fourth screenshot, but I left out my account name). So it's an endless cycle of not recognizing that I actually AM signed into the Microsoft Store and not allowing me to download the game. I even got fed up and tried purchasing the game a SECOND time in case there was some step I messed up along the way, but I just repeated the same cycle.

    Please please help me! Thank you.

    Steve

    Can not download Minecraft Java Edition--keeps getting hung up on wanting me to sign into the Microsoft Store

    Hello, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    This is from Minecraft subreddit;

    A new Launcher is being offered for download which supports Xbox Game Pass subscriptions. Unless you have such a subscription we are advising for the present not to install this new Launcher

    If you are having issues installing this new Launcher for Windows 10/11, or after installation you are unable to log in (e.g. it is apparently unavailable on your Windows Store account): please download and install the older Launcher marked as Windows 7/8 from this page - https://minecraft.net/download

    The new Launcher for Windows 10/11 has only recently been released, and judging by many posts on the subreddit it is not working correctly for some users. We recommend using the above mentioned older version for Windows 7/8 until these issues are resolved.

    If you have successfully installed the new Launcher please see this FAQ https://help.minecraft.net/hc/en-us/articles/44...

    Java and bedrock edition

    Can I get Minecraft: Java Edition for free if I bought Minecraft: Bedrock Edition and i linked the Microsoft account?
    No. The java and bedrock edition are completely separate from eachother so if you want the java edition you will have to purchase it

    Source: me. Its what i had to do.

    Minecraft question

    Hi there! This is Ronnie, your fellow Xbox gamer.

    Nice to meet you and I hope you are having a great day!

    I understand you have a question about the Minecraft version you want to buy.

    The one you are trying to buy there is actually a windows version of Minecraft but it is not the Java version.

    To buy Minecraft Java Edition to own, visit Minecraft.net/get-minecraft. You can only purchase the Java edition through the Minecraft website.

    Let me know if that helps.

    Minecraft JavaEdition

    I bought the Windows 10 version of Minecraft by mistake, but the one I wanted was the java edition.

    I saw that anyone who buys minecraft java edition is entitled to minecraft Windows 10. Is the reverse also true? Who buys minecraft windows 10 is entitled to minecraft java edition?

    If so, how do I access the java edition version at no additional cost?

    Minecraft Windows 10 Edition is not updating to new versions on my PC.

    No, you just sent me link to download Minecraft: Java Edition, but i have issue with Minecraft: Bedrock Edition (Windows 10 Edition) from Microsoft Store.
