forge installers not working or finding the path to install foge


Recommended Posts

typically I have had no problem with installing forge but recently I've run into a problem. I get the notification while using the installer win.exe that it get the l4j error telling me that the java runtime environment does not exist or is corrupted. I have reinstalled minecraft and java in its latest version and have checked with my cmd to make sure its installed. I have run the versions of minecraft that I am trying to install forge for manually if not once but several times and have installed forge before on 1.7.2 with no problem. I had installed forge for 1.7.10 before using the version 1.7.10- installer and have even used the .1277 installer as well. recently I tried installing the latest installer for forge 1.8 but this did not work and came up with the same error. I also got the same error when trying to install the latest version of the 1.7.10 installer which has already been installed using the old .1225 installer I mentioned earlier. I don't know why it cant find the path with the ones from the site but with the ones I had downloaded previously it worked. if anyone can help me and set up some step by step instructions on how to go about fixing this that would be great :)

You need the JRE installed OUTSIDE of the one that Minecraft Installs.

You could try tunning the .jar file directly. The .exe is just a wrapper around the jar that tries and fins java for you.

It tries and finds it by looking for JAVA_HOME environment variable. Make sure that's configured correctly.

I do Forge for free, however the servers to run it arn't free, so anything is appreciated.

I had everything configured I actually found a solution online where if I save the installer to somewhere like my desktop then I right click and hit open with and pick java se binary it opens right up idk why but that's what works.
