i just paid for minecraft and when i went to install it, it asked me to find it
i am quite familiar of this problem as it means i dont have proper programs to install it
so if anybody could, could someone tell me the program i need to install it
p.s. i use windows 7

I dont understand the problem you are having, could you post the error message if there is one.

If it helps: to instal minecraft you have to download the .exe form the site then double clcik it and select run it should install itself...

when you click on the minecraft.exe link on the download page of the site, it brings up a box
that says "open","save" and "cancel", mine says find instead of open meaning i dont have the specific program to install it with
so my question is, does anyone know this missing program
p.s. my java is up to date
