why does it say your account cant play on this platform
I downloaded fortnite on my windows computer and it says your account can not play on this platform. Any suggestions?

Basically if you've made an epic account on an xbox platform or even if you've made it on pc then somehow your accounts get linked that's game over my friends. Happened to me about 2 months ago, emailed epicgames they were hardly any help at all, pretty much said it was my own fault and nothing could be done even though I've wasted quite abit of money on the game.

You will encounter this error when trying to use an account you opened on another platform, for instance, Xbox to play a game on PC. While Epic Games knows this glitch exists, they are not really willing to roll out a fix that will take care of the problem.
An Epic Account can be locked to accessing the game on the platform you opened it on. For instance, your Xbox One account won’t play Fortnite Battle Royale on PC. You will have to create a new account to play the game there.
Makes no sense but it works for me.
