How To install mods WITHOUT Winrar or 7-zip!
This tutorial is for pepole who for some reason cant use winrar or 7-zip. This way might take a bit longer specialy for big mods. If your mod is a "rar" file then start on this tutorial down below if not then skip to the
Installing the Mods Part
(Good for non-computer admins)
Before doing any of these tutorials you will want to be able to see file extensions like ".jar" and ".zip"
if you cant see them, then change your folder options (if you dont know how just google it or something)
Opening "rar" files.
Rar files are opened with winrar but there is another way to do this, your user does not even have to be an admin . So to do this you will want to click to the link below
Installing the mods/mod
If your mod is in a "zip" file the extract it by right clicking and selecting the option "Extract all"
then you should have a folder named the same.
Now if you are on win 7 or vista then click the Start Menu button in the bottom left corner of your screen, and in the search box type in "%appdata%" with no "" and hit enter it will open a folder and in that folder
there will be a folder named .minecraft and you want to open it. But if on Win XP then you click the start button and the click "run..." and then type in there "%appdata%" and then it should open a folder, and in that folder there should be a folder named .minecraft and you will want to open it.
there will be a folder named "bin" open that and in there there will be a file named "minecraft.jar"
now to open it rename minecraft.jar to minecraft.zip and open it(if a warning comes up hit yes).
Delete a folder named meta_inf and drag your mod files to it (your mod files may not be in a "zip" folder)
when done then rename minecraft.zip to minecraft.jar and open minecraft and your mods should be there!!!!
