What program to open Forge jar with to run installer?


Recommended Posts

I have winrar installed, and when I try to run the forge installer it just opens the jar file.  I read online that you have to right click and "Open With" and choose Java. 


The java folder in windows 7 has a few exe files, I chose Java.exe.


I see a command prompt window open briefly, then disappear, then nothing happens.


I installed forge months ago and the installer worked perfectly.  I am sure I had winrar installed then too, which is why I was suprised that it opened in winrar.


I am trying to install forge for 1.6.4 version  I clicked the 'Installer' link on the download page. 


Any ideas?
