I deleted my .minecraft folder to wipe the slate clean for the release.  Now all the launcher will do is give the above error message.  I even tried Options -> Force Update.  Help?

I've entered my password correctly.

This is easy to fix.

First, find your .minecraft folder.
In the folder, create a new folder called bin.
Now, place the RC2 minecraft.jar in the bin folder. http://assets.minecr...2/minecraft.jar
Open Minecraft and login.

This should solve your problem.

I do mod spotlights, let's plays, and tutorials! I would really appreciate it if you took the time to check a few of them out!

I have deleted .minecraft, so I made a new one in the same spot.  I threw in the minecraft.jar in /bin like you said.  I'm still getting the same error.

Download this: http://dl.dropbox.co...necraft Bin.zip

Place it in your bin.

It is Minecraft 1.4, so you will need to force an update AFTER your first login. Its the only full bin I have in my archives :)

Thanks.

Actually, I have my copy of 1.9 archived, but it's full of mods, texture packs, old saves, and stats.  I want a clean slate.

The first time I used the Minecraft launcher, it didn't have this error.  It's only on all subsequent attempts to install the game.  What's different?  Is there a registry key or file I can delete to stimulate it to create a fresh install of Minecraft on this PC?

This is also affecting a friend's laptop.  I installed Minecraft a few months ago, he deleted it, and now he bought it but can't install it.  Sure, I could copy my binaries over to his machine, but isn't there any other way?  What causes the error?
