Unable to launch Minecraft Java Edition, error code 0x803F8001



  • First time getting Minecraft Java, if I try to open the launcher, it gives me this error:

    Minecraft Launcher is currently not available in your account. Make sure you are signed in to the Store and try again. Here’s the error code, in case you need it: 0x803F8001

    I'm pretty sure I'm signed into the store already, but it keeps giving me this error when I try to open the installer or launcher.
