Help! Can't use Minecraft Forge! I've tried everything!


Recommended Posts

I don't know if this is common or not, but I have a school owned computer with no Java Runtime installed. I know that Forge is a Java Archive Executable file. If I ctrl-click (mac) open the app, and hit ok for the unidentified dev thing, it says it needs admin password. If I try to use terminal with the /java -jar command it says I need a JDK because there is no Java Runtime present. If I do try to install a JDK or Java Runtime it requires the installer and therefore a admin password (which I don't have). I have done numerous searches on how to execute the JAR file with file converters and other modded platforms, but cannot find a solution to my problem.

Also you might ask, "If he does not have Java Runtime, how is he playing minecraft?" Well, my friend helped me install a copy of minecraft (that I paid for) that includes or somehow finds Java to run on.

Please respond with suggestions!

I am trying to use the Forge 1.11. Should I use

Also I have jre-x32 as a folder, will this help at all for the java thing?

For the first thing, I am talking about the file itself. it is called jre-x32


For the second thing, if you open the folder there is another folder called 1.8.0_25. Inside that is all these files that i assume are for the runtime. the sixth thing down is a document titled "release" and if you open it, it has the following text:

Well i can run minecraft...somehow...

I typed "java -version" into my terminal app and this is what came back:


"No Java runtime present, requesting install."

I cannot do the request install because of the admin password. But I will do some digging into the minecraft java thing. Sit tight or post more suggestions.

Then you have to talk to the admin of your computer.

Don't PM me with questions. They will be ignored! Make a thread on the appropriate board for support.


1.12 -> 1.13 primer by williewillus.


1.7.10 and older versions of Minecraft are no longer supported due to it's age! Update to the latest version for support.
