If you install it using our installer then it will be fine. As it installs the file it's trying to download.

Post the install log, it is created in the same folder you ran the installer.

Also show screenshots of what launcher you're using, and post the full log from the launcher.


The more information you give the better we can help you.

The only way that you could be getting the error that you posted is if the file our installer installs isn't there, so I have to go under the assumption you didn't install it correctly.

It *could* be a profile issue. You installed it on your windows profile and not on your daughters.

More log files will hell our by saying exactly what was installed where.

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

@LexManos I did use the installer from there. I even went back and installed it again just to make sure and I keep getting the same errors. Getting kinda frustrating. She's so excited for it and I don't want this stupid little error to break her heart. 

what are you trying to accomplish setup mdk?

For regular installation:
Install desired mc version
use forge installer then hit install client

Regular Server:
Create server folder
Download forge installer

Change the installer to install server then select server folder
Launch and your done:
Look up on the internet about port forwarding

For MDK(Minecraft Dev Kit):
install jdk
setup jdk path look up on the internet based on your os
type in your command prompt "javac" if you don't get an error you done it right
Download forge mdk version desired
extract to folder
go into mdk folder open command window there
type "gradlew setupDecompWorkspace eclipse"

open up eclipse and select your mdk folder > eclipse folder then hit launch
