I'm trying to install Minecraft for my son and would really appreciate some help - sorry this is so basic! My son has a Windows 10 laptop and we bought Minecraft Java from the Minecraft site. It seems to download a .exe file but when we try to open it we get the error code 0x803F8001
Having done a bit of searching my questions are:
Do we need to install Minecraft Launcher in order to install/use Minecraft Java?
Does the Launcher have to come from the MS store?
If download Launcher can you still use Java? ie - it doesn't force you to use Bedrock?
Sorry again for basic questions. I use Mac - windows is a mystery to me, as is Minecraft!
