Trying to install Minecraft Launcher from the Xbox App but failing due to an annoying error? Welcome to the only troubleshooting guide you will need to fix the problem! Minecraft’s new launcher is entirely broken, as most reports seem to suggest. However, things become easy when you manage to pinpoint the exact cause of the error. Minecraft’s new launcher supports platforms on Windows 10 and 11. It lets fans access all their Minecraft games – Minecraft for Windows 10, Java Edition, and Dungeons – from the same application. The developers (Mojang Studios) heavily recommend using the launcher to manage all your Minecraft games. However, you can also download the games individually on your PC – the launcher is not mandatory.
As mentioned before, many users are running into issues while trying to install or download the Minecraft app. We have noted similar dissatisfaction among users regarding launching Minecraft via the Launcher app. Users can download the launcher from Microsoft Store, Xbox App, or even the Minecraft Website. If you are trying to download and install the Minecraft Launcher via the Xbox App on your PC (Windows 10/11) but running into an issue, keep ready to know some fixes and workarounds.
Minecraft Launcher not installing from Xbox App on Windows 11/10: Fixes & Workarounds
Try the following fixes and workarounds:-
1) Check your system’s date, time, and region.
Open System Settings > Date & time settings, and fix the date and time on your system – if incorrect. If you have wrongly selected a region where Minecraft Launcher is not available, you may see the 0x803F8001 error. Head over to the Language & region settings and check whether Region is set correctly. Once done, check whether you are able to download the Minecraft Launcher app from the Xbox app.
2) Perform a login reset on both Microsoft Store and Xbox apps.
Open the Xbox app and click on the Profile icon. Select your account, and choose to Sign Out. Open the Microsoft Store app, click on the Profile and choose to Sign Out. Now, log back into both the apps with your credentials. Make sure you log in to Microsoft Store and Xbox App using the same account.
3) Reset the Xbox app.
Open the Settings app and head over to Apps > Apps & features. Now, look for the Xbox app in the list, click on it and select Advanced options. Now, under the Reset section, click on the Reset button. After you see a green tick beside the Reset button, launch Xbox app and check whether Minecraft Launcher is installing without errors.
4) You must have Xbox Identity Provider and Gaming Services on your PC.
To download Xbox Identity Provider, visit here. Now, if you feel that the Gaming Services app may be malfunctioning, you will have to remove the app and reinstall it. To remove Gaming Services, open Windows Powershell as an administrator and type the following command:
get-appxpackage Microsoft.GamingServices | remove-AppxPackage -allusers
Press Enter. Next, type the following command in the Windows Powershell terminal to reinstall Gaming Services:
Now, click on Install.
Once you have made sure that both the apps are present on your PC,
5) Open the Services app and make sure that all the services mentioned below are running.
Xbox Live Auth Manager
Xbox Live Networking Service
Xbox Live Game Save
Microsoft Store Install service
If any of them are not running, make sure you start them. Double-click the service to open Properties. Now, make sure that the Startup type is set to Automatic. If the service is stopped, make sure you click on Start (under Service Status) > Apply > OK.
6) Uninstall and reinstall the Xbox App.
Open Settings app and navigate to Apps > Apps & features. Locate the Xbox app in the list, click on it, and select Uninstall. Reinstall the Xbox app from here.
7) Make sure that Windows is completely updated on your PC.
If you are facing any trouble with OS updates or one of your updates is stuck at a certain percentage, try using the Update Assistant to complete the updates. You can download the Windows Update Assistant from here.
If none of the above works, we recommend you to try downloading the Minecraft Launcher’s .exe file for Windows 10/11 directly from here (Source: Official Minecraft Website). For more articles, stay tuned to us!
