Running Minecraft on a Windows 7 Pro SP1 64bit machine.
Last night I started to get the attached error when attempting to run the Minecraft launcher. I have Googled this, obviously, but wasn't finding anything recent. I have NOT uninstalled and re-installed Java. I will do it but I first wanted to find out if anybody knows why this error started happening? I can still launch minecraft if I change the Minecraft.exe file extension to "jar", but it annoys me to no end to have to do that. Can anybody shed any light on this?
