Alternative download options for Minecraft: Java Edition
If you can't get the standard download of Minecraft: Java Edition to work on your machine you may want to try with one of the alternative options below.
|Windows||Get Minecraft without our handy installer. If that’s your thing.||Minecraft.exe|
|Windows||If you’re still having issues, you can try an older version of the Minecraft launcher. If given the option, save the file somewhere instead of running it, then double-click the program. This version will require you to have Java installed.||Minecraft.exe|
|Mac||If you are using an older version of macOS you can try an older version of the Minecraft launcher.||Minecraft_legacy.dmg|
|Linux / Other||Install Minecraft on Linux or something else. It is executable and should work as-is if you have Java installed (please use Oracle's JVM).||Minecraft.jar|
