When I try to download Windows 10 version of Minecraft, It says "To use this app, you'll need a device with more feature" and won't let me install it. Here are my pc specs. View attachment 9694

I'm pretty sure I meet all the requirements. It worked fine until I reformatted my laptop.

You're still on the original RTM release of Windows 10 (10240). That's way outdated and certainly the issue. The latest is 17763. There has to be a reason it hasn't updated in 3+ years (I'd suspect maybe not enough free hard drive space). That version isn't even supported anymore i don't believe. How much hard drive space do you have?

You definitely need to update Windows. Apart from the game you are missing about 3 years worth of security fixes.

Go to settings -> updates -> Windows update and tell us what messages you get. Note that a full version update might take an hour or more of reasonably high speed internet

It should have all along. There's been 4 semi annual updates since the RTM version. That's why I asked how much hard drive space you had. I just got done working on my nieces laptop which was also still on the RTM version. It had a 32gb emmc ddrive which only had 4gb free on it. It wouldn't update.

I'm getting a 0x800705b4 error when I try to update. I've been trying to update it the whole day.
