I have no clue what to do anymore. I've tried downloading and redownloading everything at least 10 times along with redirecting java, downloading previous versions of java and much much more. Here are some issues i am currently having:

--- When i attempt to run Minecraft out of browser (clicking the the downloaded icon) The whole "Open File - Security Warning" pops up, i click "Run" and the minecraft launcher opens with the log in and all the update information pops up. Where i log in on this part, the whole bottom half that is usually brown like the dirt is just black with the log in bars. I log in and i get "Cannot Connect to Minecraft.net" So if i try to play "Offline" I see the green downloading bar for half a second and then it goes black and doesn't continue on from there. (Force Update doesn't help here either)

--- So i try to play in browser. It starts to download updates and all that (looking good) but then once the loading bar is ~95% complete, and states: "Done Loading" it stops there.

Honestly, i think it is something with Java. I am running windows 7 on a 64 bit operating system.

WHAT DO!??

Register or log in to remove.

Right click the link the launcher, Save As, and save to the desktop.   If you get black buttons, make sure your not disabling themes or running a basic theme....  for whatever reason the buttons don't show correctly if you do.

As for the loading problem.   open the .minecraft folder  (%appdata%\.minecraft\) and delete the bin folder.  Then run the launcher again to have it download a new copy.

If its still a problem, then we'll need to know what Anti-virus and malware scanners (all of them) that you have installed.  One of them is bound to be screwing with the program.

That test wont run. The black box with all the codes pops up for a quarter of a second and then just exits out.

Guys,

I'm having an issue running minecraft.exe on its own. It runs via MCPatcher but not if I click minecraft.exe file. I've tried troubleshooting it, messed with Java, googled and tried various fixes... I think I need to have someone help me out Posted Image. It does the same thing - it opens up the main screen but then gets stuck at black screen. Or it opens java launcher (without minecraft icon - with only java icon) and eats the hell out of my resources and doesn't do anything... I ran your test file and here is what I got. Any assistance is highly appreciated!!!

Try to disable norton security and try to run the testscript or game again, I think it is blocking it.
Also what windows version do you have?

Norton doesn't seem to be blocking it, i shut off / disabled everything i could and the program still wouldn't run. So im going to try and reinstall java yet again.

I am using windows 7

Seems that java seems to have an issue (still).

Try to desintall it (again)


Now right click the program cmd under programs and choose "run as administrator"
type or copy and paste these lines (line by line)


regedit /D HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft

regedit /D HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft

rd /s "c:\program files\Java"

and if you have a 64 bit system also:

rd /s "c:\Program Files (x86)\Java"


Now reinstall java again, and if you have 64 bit make sure that you install 64 bit java as well.

Okay i did as you said in order. No longer getting Launch4j error but still having the issue of black screen when i log in.
However, when i try to play in browser it claims "Java ™ is required to display this content"

So do i need to download the 32 bit java as well?

yup you do as well, also try my test script again. The outcome can be different.
you need the 32bit version because other programs might depend on it. (like the browser)

You first have to login fully to get all files needed downloaded, also try disabling the virusscanner that might help as well.

Also read my post before this.
