Forge installer wont run


Recommended Posts

Hello! I've been a long time user of Forge mod loader and so I use it all the time for my modding needs. However recently I got a a new computer with windows 8.1 installed. After getting Minecraft on my computer I tried to install Forge but when I did I was asked how to open the installer. Knowing that Minecraft was made with Java I figured that Forge used Java as well so I told my computer to open the installer with Java. Now Forge installer wont work and I can no longer play Minecraft with mods if it's 1.6 and up! 1.5.2 and below load A-Okay as I found out through experimentation but I'd like to play the latest mods and I can't do that anymore! :(


Trying to load the Forge installer goes one of two ways:

A: My computer tells me that the installer can't be found!

B: After clicking the FML Installer a command prompt pops up for a half a second saying "FML Installer was not found in folder: Downloads" (If I try to run it through my downloads it will also tell me whatever folder if I run it somewhere else)

I haven't downloaded the installer in a while so I don't remember exactly what the command prompt calls the installer but the rest is exact. I have all my web browsers set to download everything into my Downloads folder and run FML through there normally and have tried to run the installer from my desktop and other places in my computer. I don't know what program I'm supposed to run the installer with and don't want to select programs at random for it may make a bad situation worse. I have tried a different option of installing it manually but to no avail! Please help me! I want to think with portals, Build and craft, clone myself, go to space, industrialize, Craft rails and trains, and carpenter blocks again! :(
