    Thank you so much! This is the best news I heard all month! A little surprised it's not an appx package install, but oh well. I am going to be all over this, and this is going to make it so much easier to get some younger family members interested in coding. This really is the sweet spot. Thanks for making it happen.

    I can't make this work. Have Minecraft 1.2.2 for Windows 10 (same version as featured in the video). Connection is established to Code Connection, but it reports Error: Please update Minecraft: Education Edition to the latest version.

    Any hints on what is wrong? I'm back accessing the windows shop from Norway.

    Kids disappointed since this weekends project is not happening...

    My younger brother is disappointed now..

    Same problem connecting! Might this be language related? I'm running Minecraft for Windows 10 in Portuguese for my daughter.

    I'm getting the same message as everyone else on Minecraft for Windows 10 (English). It connects, but tells me to update Minecraft for Education edition.

    Hi Folks,

    We have a bug on Minecraft Windows 10 which is blocking the connection. We have fixed the issue and update will be released mid this week for general public. We will update this thread as soon as the update is available in Minecraft Windows 10. Thanks for your patience.

    Sincere apologies, we will strive to do better next time.

    Bug is fixed in todays release of Minecraft Windows 10. Please make sure Minecraft Windows 10 is upgraded to v1.2.3

    Why is the API so limited?

    For example, 

    blocks.onBlockPlaced(STONE_ID, function () {
        // But how do we get the position of where the block was placed???
        // Why isn't that information passed to the event handler???

    Hi, I've got the problem prompting the /connect xxx.. command unknown.
    I am using Minecraft for Windows 10 version 1.12.2 and the latest version of code connection.
    Is it supported for Minecraft for Windows 10 now??

  • User profile image

    Very nice. Thank you for this. I would ask for a way to edit .js files directly (so I could use my own editor like vsCode or Notepad++.

  • User profile image
    Installed latest Minecraft Windows 10 edition (non edu). Installed latest code connection.
    connects to /connect
    BUT - NO window opens - so I can't use the make code or code connection.

    Any suggestions?
