    After redeeming minecraft windows 10 gift code this happens.


    Okay I went ahead followed the instructions to the "Letter" every single step and checked it multiple times.
    And when i finally install minecraft i get a trial and time limit 90 minutes and it says "buy"
    HELP??? This shouldn't of happened! Trying to get free windows 10 minecraft and it wouldn't work!!
    (this was done in a virtual machine but performance was better than acceptable so minecraft ran smooth regardless. shouldn't effect it?)

    I tried and it just wouldn't work. Tried uninstalling minecraft and reinstalling it and restarting. Nope. Still wants me to buy it. and it's still the trial.
    I don't know where else to get help from because the microsoft forums don't even reply to me and mojang said it's not their problem.

    Hmm.. Are you using the same microsoft account when you claim it and when you login?

    You have to already own the game. Otherwise it will cost you $10.

    Log in to your Minecraft account on Mojang's website and follow the links in your account page to redeem it.

    I do own the game already and that's what I've already done and yes.

    update I tried uninstalling it and downloading it again and now it says "select try to close and update the app" "this app can't update when it's open"
    BUT ITS NOT OPEN?? How can it be open if its not finished installing??? I even tried restarting my computer and SAME error!
    What is going on with all these error messages??? Why all the bad luck?? help?

    I have the exact same problem.
    I redeemed the game from Mojang's site. downloaded it, installed it, connected it with my xbox account ( the email is the same for both windows 10 and xbox acc ). After I open the game it says I am on trial for 90 minutes and that I have to buy the game.

    Okay, It's been 1 minute since I posted my previous post.
    I've opened the game again and the problem is gone. . .
    I can play the game normally and there's no 90 minutes countdown nor the BUY NOW button.
    I have no idea how it got fixed but I'm glad it did!

    Same here! And when I tried to redownload minecraft I got an error message saying the code had already been used! If that is true, why do I still randomly have a time limit on my gametime, and other times there is no time limit? MAKE UP YOUR MINE XBOX -_-

    If you are new member then you can try their gift code just after login to your account. I did that and it worked.
    Or alternatively, you can find latest working coupon at giftcardspromocodes.com/minecraft-coupon-codes-free-premium-account-gift/ ,retailmenote.com and few other sites.

    Thanks
