  1. Why can't I install minecraft on my new PC?


    Every time I try to install/launch Minecraft on my new PC it gives me the same error code and fails to complete. I have spent over 2 hours troubleshooting online and have not found a solution that works for me. I'll attach a screenshot of the error.

    Hi and thanks for reaching Microsoft Xbox gamer's community. My name is Josef.
    I'm an Independent Advisor and a Microsoft Xbox user like you.

    Hope you're doing great today despite this Charis

    Please try this:

    First uninstall actual minecraft launcher.

    Open Settings, click Update and Security and then Windows Update;

    Click Check for Updates;

    Click the Download and Install Now option, if available (Install optional updates as well)

    Also, check the Microsoft Store for any updates on the Xbox apps and its services and update everything too.

    Now, sign out from your account on both Xbox app and Microsoft Store and do this:

    Go to windows settings > apps > search for gaming services app > click on it and select advanced options.

    After that, click repair and then reset

    Then do the same for the Xbox app:

    Go to windows settings > apps > search for Xbox app > click on it and select advanced options.

    After that, click repair and then reset

    Finally do this:

    Step 1: Open the Run window by pressing Windows + R key.

    Step 2: Input WSReset.exe in the Run window and click OK.

    Step 3: Then a command prompt window will appear. After a few seconds, Windows Store will open.

    Sign in again on both Microsoft store and Xbox app with your account and install minecraft launcher

    Let me know how it goes, I'll be waiting for your reply

    Thank you for your response, unfortunately I am met with the same error pop-up.

    Is it potentially a problem my old laptop was signed in to the same Microsoft account?

    UPDATE: I found a solution by going into my microsoft account and unlinking my old laptop from the devices section, and then repeating the steps you gave me. I hope this can help someone else!

    Cannot download Minecraft on PC but already paid

    Hi! My name is Pam. I'm an Independent Advisor and I'll be glad to help you today.

    I'm sorry but based on the screenshot, it's actually the Xbox version of Minecraft that's why you can't install it on your PC. Here's the version for Windows 10 PC.

    Xbox Game Pass Games Asking To Install On Devices?

    I understand the problem now, however whenever I try to install the new xbox pc app it says my pc is "Not quite ready" for it to be downloaded, I checked my windows and its all up to date. so I have no idea why I can't install that.

    I am now considering it to be impossible to play xbox games on pc for me anymore.
