    Someone else redeemed my Windows 10 Code for Minecraft


    Hi,

    I was about to play Minecraft with my friend. Because he only has the Windows 10 Edition I had to use the provided gift-code for my Windows 10 Minecraft, but after I tried to redeem the code the system told me, that
    I already redeemed it. But I never used this particular gift-code. I also have an email from the guy who redeemed my code asking me to give the account to him after I changed my password and security questions. What
    can I do to use the Windows 10 Version of Minecraft without buying it again?

    Thank you

    :)

    We're all volunteers on this forum, this is definitely a question that you should address with official Microsoft Support.

    Minecraft Windows 10 Edition free code given out by Mojang not working

    I did that, and I redeemed the code on my alt. But it still didn't give me free Windows 10 Minecraft. Am I not doing it right?
    If you redeemed the Code on your "alt", then Minecraft Windows 10 is bound to that account only.

    In order to get Minecraft on your PC then, you would have to open the Store app on your Windows 10 device, and in the upper right, sign out of your "non-alt" account in the store app. Then sign in with your "alt" account, and you should find Windows 10 Minecraft
    in your account's library. Simply download Minecraft from the library, and you should be able to play the game on your "non-alt" account as well.

    But only your "alt" account that originally redeemed the code can re-download Minecraft from the store. No one else can.

    Minecraft Windows 10 edition

    I am trying to redeem a Minecraft windows 10 edition key from the Mojang website.

    This is the prompt I am trying to redeem from:

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Minecraft for Windows 10

    You bought Minecraft: Java Edition during a period of time when Minecraft for Windows 10 was included for free. Claim your redeemable gift code by clicking the button below and follow the instructions. As you
    might have guessed, Minecraft for Windows 10 can only be played on Windows 10.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    It allows for users who have purchased the java edition of the game to then redeem a code for the windows 10 edition of the game.

    This is the error message that pops up:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Error! It looks like we've temporarily run out of gift codes for Minecraft for Windows 10. Don't worry though, more codes should be on their way. Please check back later!

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Thanks for any help!

    Redeem code is already used (Minecraft WIndows 10)

    I am not an expert, and I have the same problem. I first bought the "Minecraft: Java Edition", I wanted to use the redeem code to get "Minecraft for Windows 10", so I clicked "Redeem", I got the code, but when I entered it, it said "The code has already
    been redeemed.", I checked my order history, it said that I had bought "Minecraft for Windows 10" using the code, but when I clicked install, it keeps showing me a small window with my code. I then checked whether if the account/email on Mojang, Minecraft.net,
    and Microsoft Store, it was the same. So I don't get why I can't install "Minecraft for Window 10".

    How to find my redeem code for minecraft windows 10 edition?

    The code you mean was for people that bought JAVA Minecraft on the Mojang website before October 2018. Buyers of the JAVA Version before that date would get a code that allows them to redeem Minecraft Windows 10 on the Windows 10 Store.

    Unfortunately, buyers of the Xbox One Minecraft "only" get the Xbox One Minecraft and nothing else. Only digital buyers of the older "Minecraft Xbox One Version" (With "Xbox One Version" in the game title) would later get the newer Bedrock Minecraft for
    Xbox One for free.

    So, if you bought Minecraft (without the "Xbox One Version" in the name) on your Xbox One, that's the only version you will get. There is no Windows 10 code.
