    Lost minecraft during migration

    Not so many details, I just lost Minecraft during migration. Did everything as I was set to do.
    When I log into my launcher all I see is to play demo version. (I'm properly logged within microsoft account). Can see that on launcher. When I visit page, I can buy minecraft but not play.

    Ofcourse it was not possible to launch working launcher, I had to set up xbox account (I will now buy playstation therefore) and many other things.

    How can I recover the game ?

    No access to Minecraft: Java Edition after migrating account to Microsoft

    I have been having the same problem, now in March, and done everything to try and resolve the issue. Even after a complete uninstall and reinstall for Minecraft, (to the point where I erased every file from every registry,) I am still locked out of Java Edition.

    At this point, I can only assume this is a problem on Microsoft's end of the Migrations. An error where the license for Java is lost during Migration.

    Minecraft: Migration from Mojang to Microsoft account failed

    Hello FireBird1170,

    Thank you for contacting the Xbox Support forums. I understand there was an error during the account migration process between your Minecraft account and Microsoft account. With migration errors, it is common for the game client not to recognize your purchased license. This can be resolved once the migration error is found.

    To best assist, please view How to Migrate a Legacy Minecraft Account to a Microsoft Account to ensure no steps were left out during the migration process. If you have already followed through with the full process and are still being met with an error, please open a ticket with the Minecraft Support Team. You may do so by visiting: Minecraft Support - Contact Us.

    Thank you,

    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

    Lost Minecraft in Migration

    Hello Mateus,

    I am currently still having this problem and your instructions haven’t helped me. I am very saddened that my Minecraft Java was lost in the migration process and I can’t fix it. Is there any other way to fix this? I can only play demo, and I am crying because my mojang account has been lost and I can’t play Minecraft. Please help me.

    Lost Minecraft in Migration

    Dear all,

    I am pleased to confirm that I have managed to solve this issue!

    For anyone else is having the same issue, here is what happened:

    - Firstly, because my account is a legacy account, it turns out that the login was just my username (not the email as prompted by the login page). Many thanks to a good friend on a server for suggesting this to me.
    - Once I found this out, I logged into my Mojang account online (https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/) using the same login details of: Minecraft username (not email) and the relevant password.
    - This then prompted me to the actual process of migrating, rather than just the creation of an Xbox/Microsoft account which I was prompted to do before.
    - Minecraft then asked me to tell them the email with which the account was created to whom they sent a verification code. Luckily for me, it was my dad's email which he still uses. I have no clue what you would have to do if you don't know or have access to this email.
    - Finally after entering the code, I was asked which Microsoft account I wanted to pair the Mojang account with and so it was done!

    I'm still not exactly sure why I wasn't directed to do all of this from clicking the relevant link in the launcher, but whatever.

    Suffice to say that I am very relieved and I hope this resolves the issue for some others as well.

    Kind regards,
