Okay...I purchased the game after hearing it get high praises and am now having a very frustrating problem.

I went ahead and downloaded the game and tried to launch it only to get the following message...

"This application requires a Jave Runtime Environtment 1.5.0"

The thing is I have installed this NINE TIMES AND AM STILL GETTING THIS MESSAGE!!!

I have tried everything that I know of (including installing both 32 and 64-bit versions), deleting the file folder for java and oracle, updated the software (three times) and I am STILL getting this error.

Does anyone have ANY idea what is going on?

Thanks!

I installed both jre 1.7 and then 1.5 and I still get the message...a friend of mine is telling me that I am cursed with retardation in this case. Or that I am just cursed.

I went down and installed the lastest version first and when that did not work, I installed an earlier version. When that did not work I uninstalled that and reinstalled the latest verstion again.

How did you do that in 1 minute between posts?

All you should need is Java 7 update 5.

I did all of this before I posted. Like I said, I installed it nine times. I've been at this for the last four hours. Yes, I have Java 7 update 5 and I am still getting the message.

I went to minecraft.net and there is a link to an older version of minecraft. (http://www.minecraft.net/classic)

tried minecraft classic through web browser and it worked with no issues. There is also a browser version of the game at http://www.minecraft.net/play

My "insight" was that you downloaded the game from multiple sites (as exaggerated using bold text). There are only 2 sites were you can legally download the legitimate minecraft. Im not sure if you are being sarcastic or not, but it seems like it.

You aren't here to prosecute him based on what you infer from his comments.  If you aren't equipped to handle the issue at hand don't post.

How ironic you would say that. Hypocritical much?

Anyway, my point was he may not have the legitimate minecraft files.... because he downloaded it from multiple sites. The attitude isn't need by either of you when I simply pointed out the flaw of downloading from multiple sites.

He was simply wondering if it was sarcasm. Lay off him. Besides he was right, you should only download Minecraft from minecraft.net. Tyrarchknightlock, delete all the minecrafts you downloaded and re-download it from minecraft.net. Login with your account and make sure you have the lastest version of java. Is this the first java game you have ever played? If not, have any other games given you trouble?

Reinstalling Minecraft over and over shouldn't fix the problem as it seems to be with Java and not Minecraft.exe.
Alright, so here's what worked for me.
1. Go ahead and download and install Ccleaner. (Check Google for a download.)
2. I'd recommend performing a clean of windows and applications. (handled on the main tab.) *Make sure to write any website's you have loaded in tabs on your internet browser as you will most likely delete them by selecting, "Run cleaner." Also note that it will likely logout all currently signed in accounts. e.g. Youtube, email, etc.
3. I'd also recommend heading to the registry page and hitting, "Scan for issues," and, "Fix selected issue." You will probably have to do this a few times to fix all the errors.
4. Go to the, "Tools," tab and scroll down and uninstall every instance of Java that you find on your computer. (Excluding things like Javafx 2.1.1. You're looking for Java updates.)
5. Reinstall the latest version of Java.

Some people have reported having, "false instances of java," on their computer which prevents them from reinstalling or uninstalling newer versions of Java. Remember that it is recommended to only keep the latest version of Java on your computer as the older versions are not required.

If needed you may have to use System restore, should you be running Windows, to backdate to a time before you attempted to uninstall the Java updates. After this attempt the steps listed above once more.

I understand your point and I was pointing out that it isn't your, nor is it my, place to prosecute him for potentially using a pirated copy of Minecraft. Perhaps I was reading your replies with too much of a snippy attitude in mind and thus acted upon it, if that was the case I apologise. Wording did however lead me to view them in such a manner.

I believe it logical to try downloading from other sources if one doesn't seem to be working, the example of his copy of Minecraft and it's questioned legality aside.
