    Can't play Minecraft after migrating Mojang account



    Can't play Minecraft after migrating Mojang account [​IMG]


    When I try to play Minecraft on my Microsoft account (I migrated from a Mojang account where I had bought Minecraft Java edition) this is what the launcher tells me. I can either buy again or play the demo, which isn't fair since I've bought this game already.

    When I try to play, it tells me to go to my Mojang account to play at the complete version of the game, but I simply cannot do that, since I've been told to migrate my account and I did that, so now my Mojang account isn't recognized by the launcher.

    How to fix this and play the game that I legally bought with my money? Thx

    :)

    Minecraft migration

    That's normal, you can't access the old Mojang account after the migration, you need to use the email you used to migrate the Mojang account to, in the launcher you need to select Minecraft Java and then Microsoft login and then use the email you use during the migration process

    Hi thank you, I hope the same for you.

    I already saw the articles on the site, but nothing solved this problem for me.
    I'm in the correct account type, or the launcher wouldn't tell me to switch to my Mojang account if I wasn't connected with my Microsoft account. Also, as you can see on the screenshot I've posted, it's written "Microsoft account" under my nickname. I've already tried signing out and back in the launcher, I've already tried disinstalling and reinstalling different types of launchers (I've tried: the launcher for Microsoft 10, the launcher for Microsoft 7/8 and the launcher app from the Microsoft store) and still nothing changes.

    Hi, I hope you're doing great out there despite the issue that you're experiencing. I am an Independent advisor and I am here to help you in regard to your concern.

    As per the article released by Mojang, make sure that you're logged in using the correct account type which is "Microsoft Login". Kindly sign out on your Minecraft Launcher and then restart your PC before signing back in and choosing the correct option.

    Can't play Minecraft after migrating Mojang account

    I tried with a different Microsoft account (the only other account I have on Microsoft), but still same problem, plus I had to set the account because I never used that account for games. I'm starting to think the problem could be that my Mojang account had another email address, not the same I use for this Microsoft account. But I migrated the Mojang account that used the other email address to this one, so it shouldn't be a problem, right? Thank you for your help.

    You're welcome and thank you so much for the detailed information. If you can try a different Microsoft account of yours that would be great. That can be another cause of the issue, you're signed in under the wrong account.
