I have written a tool that will hopefully make the process of assisting people in the support forms (as well
as people trying to resolve their own issues) easier.

Recommendation:
Having a problem? Run my tool and do a full repair.
Still having a problem? Make a post in the support forms. Copy and paste the contents of the MCFixLog.txt file located on your desktop into your post along with details on your error/problem.

Currently, my tool automatically does the following:
  • Fixes permissions on .minecraft folder to assure the user has full access to it
  • Downloads the latest launcher
  • Deletes all files in .minecraft except the saves folder
  • Checks for exclamation marks in profile name, and offers solution if there is one
  • Uninstalls all old versions of Java and installs the latest for the OS architecture
  • Tries to launch Minecraft redirecting all output for easy review
These steps should fix a lot of common problems encountered with Minecraft. And hopefully make diagnosing others easier.

It creates a log on the users desktop named MCFixLog.txt that's much shorter than a dxdiag log, yet should provide all the necessary information.

Download (Direct)

Want something added? Something added to the MCFixLog, or another automatic repair task?
Just ask and I'll probably add it Posted Image

Some technicalities:
* When you run the tool, it will close all Java processes to assure Minecraft is not running and to allow Java to be uninstalled.
* Before deleting anything in the .minecraft folder, it will first make a backup named .minecraft.bak and copy everything from .minecraft into .minecraft.bak

Example log from my system:
==== System Information
Microsoft Windows 8 (64-bit)
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3210M CPU @ 2.50GHz
Physical RAM: 6144 MB
Manufacturer: SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS CO., LTD. (Model: 350V5C/351V5C/3540VC/3440VC)
AppData: C:\Users\------\AppData\Roaming

==== Display Drivers
DeviceName : Intel® HD Graphics 4000
DeviceID : PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0166&SUBSYS_C0D8144D&REV_09\3&11583659&1&10
DriverVersion : 9.18.10.3165
DriverDate : 5/7/2013

DeviceName : AMD Radeon HD 7700M Series
DeviceID : PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_682F&SUBSYS_C0D8144D&REV_00\4&14D5146E&0&0008
DriverVersion : 13.200.0.0
DriverDate : 7/23/2013

==== Auto Repair
Found launcher: "C:\Users\------\Desktop\Minecraft.exe" Exists? Yes.
All Java processes killed successfully
Successfully fixed permissions
Successfully updated the launcher
Successfully cleaned .minecraft directory
Successfully repaired and updated Java

==== Java Installations
Java 7 Update 25 (64-bit)
Java SE Development Kit 7 Update 25 (64-bit)

==== Java -Version
java.exe: C:\Windows\System32\java.exe
java version "1.7.0_25"
Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_25-b17)
Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode)

==== Launch Minecraft
<Output from launcher>
Notice it shows both my display drivers. Dxdiag logs only show the current display driver under the Display Devices section. This log is much easier to read.

Todo (upcoming features =])
* Detect modified uxtheme. This has shown to cause the Fatal bootstrap error. If detected, set _JAVA_OPTIONS environment variable to make Java use Metal L&F which has shown to resolve the problem.
* Check tool version. If there is an updated version of the tool, download and run that instead.

I don't think it worked, because I still ran my minecraft, and it still didn't open.

So, when you click on Minecraft.exe, nothing happens?

EDIT: I have some ideas, I'm going to add them to the tool.

Well, once I double click minecraft, it shows the loading symbol on windows 8 for a few seconds, then returns to my regular windows 8 mouse, nothing really happens.

The update I'm adding should offer some more explanation to what is going on, hopefully.

@Pawndri Alright I've finished my update so the MCFixLog.txt file will contain a lot more information about what happens when it tries to launch Minecraft.

Redownload and run my tool. Maybe it will now give indication to what is wrong Posted Image

Good news: My tool is improving drastically in it's ability to handle and resolve problems.
Bad news: I have no idea what would cause Java to throw that error.

Could it be something with permissions to use Java to run or something?

Okay, I just ran your auto repair tool, then opened up minecraft while your tool was up, and it said
This application requires Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0

That's because my repair tool removes Java completely, then downloads and installs the latest version.

This is to update Java, remove old versions, and fix any corruption going on with Java.

Oh, so it must not be Java, maybe something with Windows 8?
What could that be, permissions?

It could be... just to be sure I just updated my tool again to double check permissions.
You can try downloading the latest version and running it.

Not that I know of - but you can try running my tool again, and posting the log.
I've been adding so many improvements. Maybe it will find something.

Would it work if I used a mod pack like Aether II?

Hello guys. I was able to play minecraft 1.5.2 or ANY older versions, but these 1.6.1 and 1.6.2 I simply can't.
When I try to launch the game, it appears that "majong" white screen for a second, then Minecraft closes. My java is up to date, as well as my .NET framework, so I don't have a clue what's the problem: These are my system requirements:

I found out that I can play DEMO version, but not the full one.

Edit: I've fixed it, using an older launcher, currently 1.1.7
