I have tried downloading Minecraft Java Edition on my Windows 11 computer for a bit and it keeps saying "Looks like something went wrong" and bellow that says "We weren't able to install the app (0x80070057)". What should I do? Is there a certain version I need to download?


The new launcher is known to have issues for many players on Windows 11. You should try downloading and installing the Windows 7/8 launcher, which is the launcher that was previously used on Windows 10. Download it here and select Windows 7/8.

To get rid of the message about upgrading the launcher, right click the shortcut for the game and change compatibility to Windows 8 on the compatibility tab.
