You need to be more specific than that.

What doesn't work? Does it crash? Is there a crashlog?

What cestislife said. Give us a little more information, and we might be able to help. Relevant information such as whether or not you're using a launcher of sorts besides the standard one. The steps in which you might have taken in an attempt to install it. What operating system you use as well as what archiver you have.

Perhaps you're trying to install it by first installing ModLoader? If you are, then stop that. Forge now encompasses ModLoader and Audiomod into itself. Even if there are instructions saying to ModLoader, then Forge, don't follow them. They've simply not updated their install instructions.

That's just a problem a lot of people have with it. So, in case that was it, I just put it out there. Anyways, if not, give us more information. "It doesn't work" tells us nothing. :P

Looking for mods? Check out the Minecraft Forums Mod List that I maintain.

If you know of any mods not currently on the list, please let me know in this thread!

What were your exact installation steps? Again, what does "doesn't work"  imply? Is it a matter of crashing or black screens?

Here's a little guide I made that may be able to help you.

i've got the same problem. I've tried a clean install with the exe and the jar and the screen gets stuck on updating. I've tried deleting the meta info before and after applying the forge but to no avail. I made sure I have the newest version of forge which says in the file name for minecraft 1.4.7 so I know it should be compatible. I tried with a 32 and 64 bit version of java. I have a quad core processer and 8 gigs of ram with a Radeon HD 6670 video card running windows 7 Ultimate.

[update] I'm still not sure why it didn't work but MutiMC seems to make everything better. It was suggested on another thread just to see the nature of the error but it seems to work entirely.

That means if you are on mac, (Which i am) you forgot to put .jar after the minecraft folder. I also have a problem with forge, it crashes after it says mojang

I'm not quite sure why your replying, but TheCreeperAssasin seems to have fixed his issue by using MultiMC, and stated "running windows 7 Ultimate" ... This is not a Mac.

If you are still having a problem with your Forge install, start a new topic asking for help, we'd be glad to. Also have a look at the HOWTO cestislife linked to above... especially the link in it to Nerd-Boy's crash log howto. Without that info, we cannot help.

Something might be blocking your computer from accessing the download server. You might want to try downloading the libs manually. This is for 1.5.1 only, however, as the files differ from version to version.

MCPatcher and Forge don't work well with each other. I recommend using Optifine for the HD features  and Multimc for easier mod installation.

Please quote my post when you are replying to me so that you make sure that I read it.

I have a similar problem to Wolvemonkey, but I have some more specifics.

Basically, I tried to install Forge Modloader for 1.5.1, (because I couldn't find anything else that worked for me for some reason, and I DID install the 1.5.1 minecraft.jar file) and it doesn't work. When I start Minecraft, and the message that says FML is setting up your Minecraft Environment just stays there for a really long time, and the percentage bar stays at zero. I left my computer alone for 2 hours thinking that FML might just be acting slow for some reason. I came back, and it was still at zero! I've looked into this, and I haven't been able to find any answers to this problem.

The reason I used 1.5.1 instead of 1.5.2 is because my friend has the same FML that I am using, and his is working. Again, I don't know why my FML isn't working.

Thank You

I have a frustrating problem with forge, too. I properly downloaded it for 1.6.2 (I want to download pixlemon) and it says it's a compressed file and can't be opened. WHAT THE HECK? No matter what I do, it won't open. I've started up MineCraft, tried to open with all possible strategies, but no. It just always says, "This file cannot be opened". Why? When I copy it to my desktop it's always just a blank piece of paper for the icon, if that'll help. But seriously, what the heck.
