    Why do I have to buy minecraft again?


    I just got a new pc and I started downloading the minecraft launcher. When it finished downloading I logged into my microsoft account, but when I got in it said that I had to buy the game. I already have and I used the same account. What do I do?

    :)

    Hello Kule, My name is Jesse. I'm an Independent Advisor and a member of the Microsoft community and I'd love to assist you today.

    In the Minecraft Launcher go to View All Accounts in the drop-down under your icon, and add a Microsoft account. Put in the info you use to log into Dungeons. Now you have to switch between accounts to play Dungeons (Microsoft) or Minecraft Java (Mojang) but it's all saved in the launcher.

    Hope this helps.

    Jesse.

    Why do I have to buy minecraft again?

    Please check your order history to see if the game is still on the list!

    If it is, try to clear the Microsoft Store cache

    1. Press Windows Key + R to launch Run.
    2. Enter wsreset.exe and hit Enter.
    3. Once the reset process finished, restart your PC and then check again!
    If it isn't on that list, then you will have to contact the support through: Contact us | Xbox Support

    Hello Fellow Gamer

    Thank you for taking the time to post this on the Xbox Forums. We understand that you are inquiring about why you are being prompted to purchase a game once more.

    Make sure that you are using the same account you originally purchased this game on, otherwise you would be unable to

    install the game

    I hope this helps.
