So, I bought minecraft and whatnot, but when I try to run the launcher I get this:
Starting launcher. FATAL ERROR: net.minecraft.bootstrap.Fatal Bootstrap Error: Unable to start: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException at net.minecraft.bootstrap.Bootstrap.startLauncher(Bootstrap.java:242) at net.minecraft.bootstrap.Bootstrap.execute(Bootstrap.java:124) at net.minecraft.bootstrap.Bootstrap.main(Bootstrap.java:381)
Please fix the error and restart.

I went to my laptop and it went perfectly fine, but the laptop is a potato and can hardly run it above 20fps, and it doesn't have an lcd on it.. My desktop is the one I want to use it on because it's my main computer. please help :(

I've done all that numerous times. If anything, my laptop's java is more out of date.

The problem:
InvocationTargetException wraps another exception that occurs through reflection.
This means that the InvocationTargetException is pretty much useless without knowing what exception caused it.
Unfortunately, the way the launcher currently handles and reports errors, it will not show the original exception that occurred.

This makes figuring out what is causing this exception very difficult.

My solution:
I wrote a tool that will do two things:
1. Download the latest version of the launcher from minecraft.net
2. Patch one file in the launcher so it reports the full exception.
You can download it from here (jar file download).

I recommend everyone having this problem to download my tool and run it.
Then copy and paste the error log to your respective threads. (don't hijack this one)

Hopefully we'll be able to determine the cause of this error, and resolve it.

Turns out that It was my taskbar theme.. wow, didn't expect that to be it. I figured from the errors it stated.

This is good.
It's looking like this exception is thrown most of the time by a problem with Java's LookAndFeel.

Do you have a custom Windows theme by any chance?
