"Could not find the main class."
Posted 01 March 2011 - 07:59 AM
Every now and then when I try to launch Minecraft I get this nonsense: "Could not find the main class. net.minecraft.launcherframe The application will now close," or something to that effect. Had to recreate it from memory since the thing decided it'd be a fun prank to work right when I'm trying to get help. Sometimes the program works absolutely peachy, and when I do run into the error trying two or three more times makes it shape up and behave.
Google tells me this problem is somewhat confined to Linux systems, so I'm supposing that I couldn't be getting this on Windows 7? I have the latest Java.
LAST SECOND ADDITION: Here's the error.

You get that on Linux systems when the path is incorrect and/or it can't find the correct .jar file.
If it is intermittent it is probably your Anti-virus scanning the file when the launcher is trying to open it, so add an exception for it. (The minecraft files are in %appdata%\.minecraft)

back to the question, why does it happen? every time I click on minecraft, it pops up on the 1st try but on the 2nd try, minecraft works. annoying but still, why? I would like to get rid of the message all together. I click on it from my desktop btw.

Ran error test:
===Simple Minecraft Error Test===
'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
Right click, Select all,
Press Enter (This will copy the output to your clipboard).
Then paste the result on http://www.pastebin.com
Press any key to continue . . .
Not sure what it is trying to say, Java is working perfectly for every other non-minecraft thing...

The server one seems to work fine, but I get this message as soon as I double-click the client jar file. Using W7 64-bit.
Anyone know what the cause is?
