I am trying to install minecraft forge in a named .minecraft folder (ex: .minecraftmodded). whenever i try to select the folder it says 'The Directory is Missing a launcher Profile. Please run the minecraft launcher first" but i already have. I logged in and everything.

Any suggestions?

Thx in advanced.

So, the named folder is empty? Or does it have things in it?
Or you can try this. Lets call the named folder 'A' and the normal folder 'B'.

Rename B to 'temporaryname'.
Rename A to .minecraft
Run the forge installer and install mods.
Rename A to whatever you wanted it to be.
Rename B to .minecraft

Ta - Da!

the named folder has the following folders
  • resource packs
  • saves
  • stats
i would try the way u suggested but it wont let me rename the folders in the roaming folder if i put a period in front of it. whenever i try it says "please select a file type"

thx for the feedback. anything else i could do?

I have the same problem. Just because I don't have minecraft profile (I've tried to create it many times, but never can log in somehow) I downloaded cracked launcher version. Whenever I try to install forge, it says the same thing that you wrote (btw, my folder is .minecraft, not named). This problem is solved now, I just updated the version to 1.6.2_forge on the launcher, but there is one more thing.
I have the other computer and when I try the same procedure it doesn't work, when I click ''Play'' nothing happens. It works just fine with normal minecraft 1.6.2 (without forge), but when I install it (if I manage to) it doesn't work.
Can anyone please help me? I would be very grateful.

I solved it!. you have to install it into the regular .minecraft folder then when u open the launcher, edit the forge profile then change teh game directory!

I don't know what is the problem:
I have working minecraft with forge and one mod installed, but when I send all the files including the launcher to the other computer, minecraft doesn't work. When I click play nothing happens. Getting crazy of this...

you go to your .minecraft and change all the files with the name "launchers" to "launcher". Then you can install forge. Once installed , open minecraft and delete the "launcher" files as the minecraft would have created new ones.then its done!
