Launcher profile is corrupted


Recommended Posts

Hello. Today I decided to switch to 1.8.9 forge and delete all my 1.12.2 stuff. When I go to reinstall forge, it says: The launcher profile is corrupted. Re-run the minecraft launcher to fix it! I did that, and it didn't work. I also moved my .minecraft folder from my C: drive to my D: drive. Please help!

(I had moved my .minecraft folder from my D: drive to my :C drive.) 

Never mind. I got it fixed! 
If anybody else sees this and needs help, here is how I solved it.

1. Install forge in the default/preset location.

2. open your MC launcher. 

3. go to launch options

4. go to the forge profile

5. set the game directory to the NEW .minecraft folder destination. 

6. launch MC, and boom! it should work. Your your texture packs wont be activated if you have any, so just go and activate them. 

hope this helped!
