Can't login to Microsoft Account on Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition or Pocket Edition

When I try to login to my Microsoft account on Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition/Pocket Edition, the app loads up a blank login screen and then cuts out and reverts back to the Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition/Pocket Edition start up screen, yet I have no problem on any other apps, please help.
