    I no longer own Minecraft in the Windows 10 Store?


    I owned Mojang's Minecraft. When it came out on Windows 10, I redeemed for my free version. Anytime I rebuilt my PC, I could always reinstall Minecraft because the Windows Store knew I owned it. I just got a new PC, installed Windows 10 and went into the store and tried to install Minecraft. Now it wants me to pay $26. So what happened? Why do I no longer own Minecraft in the store?

    Could it be the different identity of your new computer doesn't fit the description of the computer used when you first bought the program?

    I figured it out. I didn't know Microsoft kept track of computers. I had reached my limit of 10 devices. I had to go delete my previous builds and then it allowed me to install Minecraft.

    Thanks!

    You're welcome. Sometimes what seems a far-fetched idea actually works.
