My lad has minecraft on his xbox one. I can't get that login to work on his laptop. Am I missing something?

Two seperate logins for the two versions. He'll have a Microsoft account for the xbox and a Mojang account for Java.

Download the version from the Windows 10 store and he'll be able to log into that with his xbox live acount

It looks like I have to buy it again. As he started playing this year, so after the November 2019 cutoff for a free pc version.

If you have a Game pass Ultimate subscription, you should be able to play Minecraft for free on the PC.

Actually, ignore this. You can't. It's the Xbox version that's on Game pass and not the PC version. So looks like you'll have to pay for it I'm afraid.

Have tried that.

Windows store won’t let me download unless I pay.
Tried the trail but that wants paying to upgrade.

I'd try the Microsoft games subscription service for the personal computer. It's probably there.
