Trouble installing Forge Source


Recommended Posts



I downloaded Forge, the recommended version for 1.6.4, and I've run into an issue when running the installer.


First, I unzipped the zip folder and dropped the .\forge\ file onto my desktop. Then, I ran the install.bat file. After running it a few times and manually downloading all the libraries it couldn't download automatically, any time I ran it again I got the following in my console:


================ Forge ModLoader Setup Start ===================
MCP Detected already, not downloading
Setting up MCP
Patching commands.py

    Commands patch applied successfully
Copying FML conf

Error gathering asset list:
IOError('socket error', SSLError(8, '_ssl.c:504: EOF occurred in violation of protocol'))
Decompile Exception: 1
Press any key to continue . . .


The last four lines are the exception I cannot figure out. I tried looking it up on these forums and on Google and came up with nothing helpful. I tried doing this with my anti-virus turned off, but the same exception came up. Is there a fix to this? Is there another installation step I skipped? Everything I listed above is what I did; nothing more, nothing less.
