    Description

      Message from Mojang

      Fix for this has been found and will be coming soon. Recent Store update is to fix a related but distinct issue. An Official update to fix this problem is scheduled for later this week.

      The bug

      I faced a bug when I have installed the new version from MS Store. Installation process was ok. After I had opened and closed it about 5 times my PC started crashing. I just open launcher, wait 3 seconds and my pc crash with BSOD (wcifs.sys). I fixed it by installing older version of launcher.

      Steps to reproduce

      Repeated or double open game version 1.17.1.
