Error: Invalid or Corrupt jarfile

Recommended Posts

forge-1.16.5-36.1.0-installer.jar- I've used this to install forge but it does not work and shows me Error: Invalid or Corrupt jarfile

I've tried it with every other forge version (1.16.*, 1.8.*) But the same thing shows.


Please help I've tried reinstalling java over a few times (uninstalling it too)

Jarfix does not work

I've installed them from this webpage in "files"

You can try running jarfix, but it probably won't fix this. It looks like the download got corrupted.


Some zip managers like to take control of the .jar file extension away from Java.
Make sure you have Java installed and try running Jarfix once, then try the installer again.

I've found the solution thanks. Just had to keep downloading the installer until Unconfirmed #####.crdownload stopped showing in the downloads folder. Found it strange that on the browser it shows as a finished download.
