Thank you , we think it’s because charlie dosent already own a copy of minecraft. Do we need to own minecraft before we download the java version as this is only letting him use the demo version. The java version was still $40 nzd
I'm pretty sure there's no separate demo version, just a demo mode that it plays in if you aren't logged in to an account that owns the game.
When you start the launcher, the screen that comes up when you double click on the Minecraft icon on your computer, in the upper right, just left of the "Help" button it should have his user name if he is logged on to his account, otherwise I don't know what it says (maybe "Guest") but clicking on it should give you a list of options one of which should be Login or something, clicking on that should let him log in with his email address and password and connect the game to his account so he can play normally
