  1. Why is Minecraft asking me to buy it again?


    I migrated my Mojang account to Microsoft this year. I bought minecraft through a prepaid card. But when I go into the launcher now after not playing for a long time it is saying that I have to buy minecraft again. How can I play minecraft again? Also does the microsoft account that got migrated to get an email saying that it was migrated too?

    This issue started a long time ago. I think that it was during the middle of 2022. We have tried all of the different emails that we can remember. The only change that we did was factory resetting a windows laptop that the account was on. We didn't remove files from the computer, only the programs/apps. The account name is UnheardFox89797. When I tried logging into minecraft.net with the Mojang account it said it was already migrated. In the inbox of the old account it shows that that account was successfully migrated. Is it possible for you to tell us which outlook email is linked the the account "UnheardFox89797".

    Thanks, Bhavini

    Minecraft Java asks me to buy again.

    Hi Fernando,

    I have tried this already and it does not work.

    The problem is that when Iog into microsoft and look at my owned games, it appears that my microsoft account does not own minecraft java edition and only owns the bedrock edition, even though i've been playing Java edition on it daily up till now.

    Thanks.

    Minecraft Java is asking me to buy it again.

    I bought the game from the Minecraft site itself, the top of the screen has a "Buy Minecraft" button
