    Hi Alex!

    Thanks for reaching Microsoft Community. We're here to help and let's work on this together.

    I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble with Minecraft. It's possible that there may be an issue with your account or with the game itself. To resolve this issue, I recommend that you try the following steps:



    1. Make sure that you're signed in to the correct Microsoft account that you used to purchase Minecraft.



    2. Check your purchase history to confirm that the purchase was made and that it's associated with the correct account.



    3. Try restarting your device and then launching Minecraft again.



    4. If the issue persists, try uninstalling and reinstalling Minecraft.



    If none of these step's work, please contact live support for further assistance. To contact live support, please follow the guide below:

    Minecraft Asking Me to Purchase Again

    Hi Samy I've also seen the suggestion of installing the game on the primary hard drive; I would follow this if my primary drive hadn't so little storage :(. I've also tried many times removing my account and logging back in with my Microsoft account from the launcher and it still only showed "play demo". I can only hope that Mojang fixes the problem soon. Thank you for your help anyhow, Samy! It's nice to know that I'm not the only one experiencing this issue at least.

    Minecraft Asking Me to Purchase Again

    I'm Samy an independent advisor. Welcome to the Xbox community. How are you?

    It is a known issue and Mojang is working to fix this bug in the new launcher. They also recommend installing the launcher on your primary hard drive.

    I also recommend this step.

    Open the launcher, go to settings>accounts>click the 3 dots, and remove all accounts connected to the launcher. You will return to the log-in screen, log in with the Microsoft account you used to migrate your account, and see if that resolves the issue.
