This morning I successfully installed Forge but was unable to select the Forge version profile in the Minecraft launcher. Google and a search through this forum haven't yielded any results. The weird part is that I could select the profile when installing LiteLoader but the profile still won't display in the profile editor. Yes, I installed to the right directory. I've used Forge with Minecraft for a while.


Here's what my launcher_profiles.json looks like:



  "profiles": {

    "mollymollykelkel": {

      "name": "mollymollykelkel",

      "lastVersionId": "1.7.10"



  "selectedProfile": "mollymollykelkel",

  "clientToken": "a426f238-987d-4ae6-8292-c057370fd4f1",

  "authenticationDatabase": {

    "<redacted>": {

      "displayName": "mollymollykelkel",

      "accessToken": "<redacted>",

      "userid": "<redacted>",

      "uuid": "<redacted>",

      "username": "[my email]"



  "selectedUser": "<redacted>",

  "launcherVersion": {

    "name": "1.5.3",

    "format": 17




Exact list of steps:


1) Ran vanilla Minecraft and close it.


2) Downloaded 1.7.10 reccomended installer from here


3) Successfully installed Forge


4) Opened Minecraft launcher


5) Selected 'new profile'


5) Went to select Minecraft version


6) Forge was not present in drop down menu


I'm totally clueless as to how to fix this. Please halp.
