    Description

      Workaround
      1. Open the %appdata%/.minecraft folder
      2. Create a copy of launcher_profiles.json
      3. Delete launcher_profiles_microsoft_store.json
      4. Rename the copied version of launcher_profiles.json to launcher_profiles_microsoft_store.json

      When I opened up the Minecraft Launcher today, I saw an alert that told me that there was a new Launcher version that I could download from the Microsoft Store. I said, 'alright,' and downloaded it.

      But, alas, upon opening the Store Version I discovered that all my versions were gone! 

      If I open the Old Version, it still has all my versions. 

      I don't wanna have to redo everything, pleas fix.
