Minecraft will NOT run
Posted 13 August 2012 - 03:33 AM
--- 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.

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.

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 . 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 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.

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?
Posted 17 August 2012 - 01:06 AM
you need the 32bit version because other programs might depend on it. (like the browser)
