    I can't download minecraft launcher on a new device


    I have recently gotten a new computer which I want to play minecraft on. I tried to download the launcher from the website, and it brought me to microsoft store and gave me this error.

    I then logged on to my microsoft account in the microsoft store to download the launcher there. But it prompted me to enter in a pin as shown.

    The thing is, I have never once done set-up for a pin on that account before. I tried to set-up a pin in the sign-in options on my computer, but it is not the same pin apparently. Does anyone know what this pin exactly is and where can I see it from?

    :)

    Hi, thank you for your reply

    So say, Computer A is logged in with account A, and Computer B is logged in with account B. Account A has the minecraft account. If I try to access Account A on Computer B, will the pin required be from account A or Account B?

    the pin has nothing to do with the account, in this case it would be the password for the account, the pin is for the pc, when windows is installed it asks to link an account and then immediately advises you to set a pin, which in this case can be smaller and simpler as it is only necessary to start windows and install or access other apps only on this computer.

    good morning

    it does not identify your account's digital license, log into your web account and add the trusted device to your account.

    the pin it asks for in installations and adding accounts, it's from your pc, it has a password, this is the pin it asks for, it's not the account password, on the pc a pin was added that is the password to access windows .

    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.

    Check for the "offline permissions" setting in the general tab of the xbox app settings. Once you've enabled it the game should open perfectly.

    I bought Minecraft but it says I didn't and it still charged me

    Hi Kelly,

    I am Sumit here to assist you with this question.

    Sure we can help. I assume you used a Microsoft Account and a Windows device to purchase.

    Please download:

    Minecraft Launcher

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-is/p/minecraft-lau...

    Choose Minecraft Java, sign in if prompted and you should be able to download Minecraft Java to your device.

    Good luck!
