    Minecraft launcher saying I don't own Minecraft Java edition even though I have for years.


    Title.

    Also I did the whole account migration and everything worked fine until I tried to log in specifically last night.

    Is this something that can be fixed or some sort of weird marketing scheme where they try to make you buy the game you already bought?

    :)

    Hi Firehawk894, 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 regards to your concern.

    Kindly sign out your account on Minecraft Launcher then restart your PC before signing back in and make sure to choose "Microsoft Login".

    If the same issue occurs, kindly click the "buy" option and check what options you will have from there.

    Minecraft launcher saying I don't own Minecraft Java edition even though I have for years.

    Logging out, restarting and logging back in didn't work.

    Clicking the buy option presents me with the following:

    Clicking dismiss does what you'd expect.

    Clicking "Switch account" kicks me back out to the login screen, where trying to log in with my Mojang account tells me that it was already migrated. Logging in with the supposed migrated account results in what you see above.

    And for obvious reasons I'm not clicking to buy the game again when I already own a copy

    Minecraft will not open via launcher, only through microsoft store.

    Hello mimim2,

    The Minecraft launcher you are referring to is only for the Java edition of Minecraft. The Java edition and Windows 10, are two separate games. In order to launch and play Minecraft from the launcher you are using in the last image, you must buy the Java
    edition from the site, not the Windows 10 version. Minecraft Java Edition | Minecraft. Annoying I know, but when Microsoft acquired Minecraft they released
    their own version of the game on their platform. Hope this helps

    Cant play Minecraft after account migration

    When I click buy from the Minecraft launcher it takes me to this website https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/store/minecraft-java-edition?ref=Launcher I'm not logged in and it has the option to purchase Minecraft but after logging in to the that website with same Microsoft account that I had logged into the Minecraft launcher with the purchase option is replaced with Already own Minecraft? Download it again. and the launcher download button.
