I am trying to play SMP but I can't because I am stuck running 1.2. The game doesn't update when I log in, because  when the update came out I re-installed all my mods. Now I have uninstalled my mods but it still won't update. any help? All I need to do is update my game.

Open the "Run" dialog box and type "%appdata%" and you should see it.

Edit: This is assuming you mean you can't find the "%appdata%" junction.

Small clarification: C:\Users\\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\bin\

Replace C:\ if you have a custom installation of Win7.
Replace with whatever you PC login name is, NOT your minecraft name.
The AppData folder is hidden by default. To view it, goto Tools > Folder Options > View (tab) > Check "Show hidden files and folders" > OK (button).
As my signature states, ONLY delete the \bin\ folder. If you delete anything else, you could loose your saves.

The launcher should download the current version files on restart. This should get you to 1.3.

Or.. You could just get the new launcher, click "Options" then click "Force Update!" or to find your /bin folder click on the link below "Force Update!".

Now you're just over simplifying things...

Aha! Got you there, true! Sorry, you have to be a pirate to get help around these forums.

...

But in all seriousness, you can either get the new browser off minecraft.net or delete the version file in the bin folder.

I have a few questions too.

#1: Minecraft never connects and I practically always play offline, doing the following steps you stated will it update me from 1.2 or not?

#2: Does updating reset minecraft and removes EVERYTHING I built on it?

Thanks. :)
