    This is a known bug that our Devs are working on. We are aware of this issue and thank you for your patience.

    Hi All,

    I have develop a small tool for work around the v1.50 issue with the latest version of Minecraft Bedrock.

    CodeConnectFix  : https://github.com/lrocher/CodeConnectFix

    This is an intermediate websocket server that simulates a version compatible with v1.50.

     Code Connection v1.50 <====> CodeConnectFix <====> Minecraft Bedrock

    It's made using node.js and mcpews library.
    A standalone windows executable is availlable for simplify usage.

    It's not fully tested but my son can now learn coding with Minecraft :)

    I hope this can be useful for others

    Same issue with Minecraft for Windows 1.19.2. I purchased this specifically for my son to learn to code.

    Hi Danny

    That is great to hear that you still care about it.  :-)  But it would be even greater if you guys can make it work again. :-)  We are using the Bedrock edition, not the educational edition of minecraft and it use to work great with that version of minecraft.

    I've hit this problem as well, and found a solution. 

    The problem is that Code Connection (v1.50) doesn't work with the latest versions of Minecraft Bedrock (v1.18 or v1.19).  And it gives a rather misleading error: "Please update this application to the latest version".

    However it's still possible to use Code Connection with Microsoft Bedrock by installing the older v1.17 version of Minecraft.  The following steps worked for me.

    • Install BOTH of the following from the Microsoft .NET website.  These are required to run the Bedrock version launcher.  https://dotnet.microsoft.com/en-us/download/dotnet/6.0

      ASP.NET Core Runtime 6.0.9 ("Hosting Bundle")

      .NET Desktop Runtime 6.0.9 

    • Download the open source "Bedrock Launcher" application from github: https://bedrocklauncher.github.io/
    • Run the launcher.  Then create and run a new Minecraft "installation" for the latest 1.17 version.

    This started up Minecraft Bedrock on version 1.17.41.  I was then able to launch Code Connection and connect to the game as normal.

    Additional information:

    Some screenshots below -

    Successful Bedrock v1.17 installation started using the Bedrock Launcher: 



    Now Code Connection works again!

    At this time there is no ETA or updated information we have been provided from the Dev team. Once we are told about one, we will make a new post and pin it to the top of our community page.

    same problem with me, I encountered this issue today, update to 1.18.30, and some of my students not upgrade so currently they can use code connection to program

    Today is 06/12/2022 and I'm still getting the "upgrade to latest version" error from Code Connection.

    Is there a workaround?

    Is there an ETA from the devs?

    I have the same problem, and since this post is 3 months old I don't think your devs are working on this anymore.  Whay was Code connect stopped?  It worked so well and my kids enjoyed it so much.

    Hey there Pieter! 

    We all still love Code Connection as well! I am glad your kids enjoyed it too. While there are no updates I am aware of to this issue currently, code connection is still something we all care about.

    Let us know what we can do to expedite this! I’m a software engineer and can provide detailed technical feedback & testing if need be.

    Eager to get this up and running for my students!

    I have the same problem.

    Minecraft for Windows version 1.19.11 doesn't seem to fix this issue.
    When will Code Connection for Minecraft work on Minecraft for Windows?

    Minecraft for Windows v1.19.11
    Code Connection for Minecraft v1.50

    I purchased a commercial license for the Education Edition following the link in the thread by Danny from the Support Team. 

    The license is only $12/year and worth it to me for the extra material available through the educommunity site. I haven't checked the Minecraft Education Edition/Code Connection link yet, but there is a ton of information/guidelines/tutorials available on the educommunity site.

    Dominick any information about upcoming update for Code Connection?

    Rob Starling thanks for the work around.

    Any updated news on this issue for Minecraft Bedrock Edition (Windows 10 Edition)? I hope Microsoft is not trying to exclude some of the community :(

    This is working even better than the alternative launcher!!! Thank you sir, you're incredible!!!

     

    Ok I've just spend some time testing and it appears that not all code editors get passed the same way, because for some, there were actions that did not work, and others where they did.

    For exemple, Makecode editor has virtually no functioning agent code, aside from teleporting it, and using its position as a waypoint of sort, while Code.org agent mouvements worked just fine.

    All the other makecode blocks appear to work, I've not tested every single options for all of them, but I tested the blocks themselves and they worked. (aside as said, from the agent)

    Scratch has a button which redirect to the website for installing extension, but I couldn't find a minecraft one, so I think it's been deleted.

    Tynker code appear to all work fine, except again for the agent, this time the blocks don't even appear in the editor.

    All in all, Code.org seems to be working the best, but is woefully lacking in content. Tynker and Makecode work fine except for the agent, but at least they have more blocks to code with.

    If anyone figure out something I missed, I'll be open to a solution for that agent problem

  • Laurent Rocher

    Thanks for feedback. I haven't test all blocks command yet :)

    I think i have fix agent issue. I have test some commands and it's look working now (at least with MakeCode).
    I have publish a new version v1.1.0.

    For scratch, i think it's not working anymore because it's based on stcrachx (use Flash plugin).

    Code.org and Tynker have less block. I think they use a different API for communicate with Code Connect.
    I need to test them :)

    Ah yes, for Scratch that makes sense. The plugin has been deleted, and code connect just didn't update to remove the button.

    I'm going to test the new version, I'll write if I find anything else

    Thanks again! :)

    Hi, I have an issue with MEE 1.17.32 within my schools LAN, up until recently, the join code has been generating as it should but now has stopped, is this part of the same bug that's being investigated by the devs?

    Thanks

    There is not current update or fix we can offer at this time. You can try using the Minecraft Education Beta we offer (1.18.1) to see if that changes or resolves the issue. Thank you for your patience.
