  1. minecraft for windows 10 not starting installation, just says 'waiting for installation'


    so when i try click install it does nothing and replaces the install with 'waiting for installation'.

    ive reset my whole pc and the problem doesnt work, ive tried on my laptop to see if it will download it and it works on the laptop, another thing to add is that when i open the launcher sometimes it says 'there is an update available. restart the launcher to play on the most recent version' and when i do restart it nothing happens.

    after a bit of troubleshooting i think i found the problem: i believe my minecraft launcher isnt synced with my microsoft store/xbox app but ive tried every guide, every youtube video to sync the two and cant find anything helpful.

    any help would be nice my friends just started a realm two days ago and ive been trying to fix this ever since

    Thank you for the information. Are you trying to install the Minecraft Java Edition or the Minecraft Bedrock Edition?

    If you're trying to install the Bedrock Edition, try to install the game itself without using the Launcher. Simply search Minecraft for Windows on Xbox app or Microsoft Store.

    You could as well try to install the Launcher from the web here https://www.minecraft.net/en-us/download

    Hi Garson!

    I am sorry to hear about what happened. Let's see what we can do about this matter here.

    To isolate the issue, I will be asking few questions.

    Have you tried downloading or installing a different game from the Microsoft Store or Xbox app if you could install it successfully?

    Did you try to install the game directly from the Microsoft Store and Xbox app?

    Be sure to sign in the same Microsoft account on your Microsoft Store and Xbox app.

    Don't forget to check for Windows updates and get all available updates from the Microsoft Store.

    Check for Windows updates - https://support.microsoft.com/windows/update-wi...

    Get updates from Microsoft Store - https://support.microsoft.com/account-billing/g...

    If you have installed a 3rd party anti-virus software, please try to disable it temporarily.

    Try as well to verify and repair your game:

    Open the Xbox app for Windows.

    In My Library, select the game title.

    Select the More options (…) button and choose Manage.

    Select Files and then Verify and repair.

    Then repair/reset your Microsoft Store and Xbox app.
