Hi everyone! So I've been trying to get forge running on my machine for about 2 days now to no avail. My issue is that I can't get the installer to run no matter what I try, and unfortunately because I can't install it in the first place I don't think I can provide you guys any logs. I download the installer file and then upon double clicking it I get a black window for a fraction of a second and then a Java window pops up that says, "Java(TM) Platform SE binary has stopped working" and it forces me to close the installer. I'm on Windows 10. I've tried reinstalling Java a dozen or so times and once I even went into my files and searched for anything with the word "Java" in it and deleted it, but that didn't seem to help me. I have a feeling this is a Windows 10 specific issue because I was able to install forge on a windows 7 computer in my house but when I tried simply transferring the files over onto this one the forge Minecraft profile wouldn't launch. Whether I use the "windows installer" or the "installer" has no effect either. I've tried changing file extensions to .jar but that also had no effect. Minecraft on its own runs fine so it's not like my computer somehow can't run Java... If anyone has some advice to give me it would be much appreciated because I feel like I'm losing my mind here trying to get mods working. All of my Nvidia drivers are up to date 100%.
What I've tried:
-Uninstalling Java completely + reinstalling it
-Uninstalling/reinstalling JRE (Java Runtime Environment) separately from the regular Java program
-Moving the files from another computer
-A program called "Jarfix" that has supposedly helped many other people with this issue
-Changing file extensions
Thanks for your time guys.
