Although Minecraft can be played on virtually every device, some prefer playing it on a PC. This lets you play both the Java and Bedrock editions. Before you can start playing the games, you'll need to first install them onto your hard drive. If you are having issues getting the Minecraft Launcher installer to work here are some tips to fix it.
Log in to confirm the date, time and region
If you're having trouble getting the Minecraft Launcher to install, we recommend first restarting your computer and sign out, then logging returning to the Microsoft Store or the Xbox apps, depending on which one you are using to access the launcher. Now that all versions of Minecraft are available on Game Pass, you can try installing the launcher via the Game Pass app. To sign out, simply click the profile icon at the top of the page and then click Sign In.
Also, ensure that your time zone and date are displayed correctly on your PC. If they aren't, right-click on the date and time in the lower right-hand corner of your screen and select the option to adjust date/time. Make sure that Set time automatically is enabled and that Set time zone automatically is on. Click Sync now under Synchronize your time. Before you exit the Settings screen, select Region in the left-hand corner of the screen. Make sure that the appropriate region is selected.
