Error Failed to download file.


Recommended Posts

Error is at step 9.

 

This is the process I went through:

  1. Fresh download of minecraft from minecraft.net ["Download for Windows"].
  2. Installed minecraft.
  3. Launched the Minecraft Launcher and went to "Launch Options" and "Add new", set version to 1.12.2. Saved.
  4. Opened that version "Play 1.12.2".
  5. Closed the game and launcher.
  6. Went to https://files.minecraftforge.net/ and downloaded the "Windows Installer" for ver 14.23.4.2747
  7. Opened the installer and left it on the default "Install client". Install was successful (see attached "installer.log" attachment 1).
  8. Opened the Minecraft Launcher and selected the "with forge"
  9. Got this error: https://i.imgur.com/a2axCJu.png

    Failed to download file. forge-1.12.2-14.23.4.2747.jar
    Name: forge-1.12.2-14.23.4.2747.jar
    URL: http://files.minecraftforge.net/maven/net/minecraftforge/forge/1.12.2-14.23.4.2747/forge-1.12.2-14.23.4.2747.jar
    Error details: HTTP 404: Not Found
    Filename on disk: 94b9-7b5d-fb31-ddb8
    Path: C:\Users\Raymond\AppData\Local\Temp\94b9-7b5d-fb31-ddb8
    Exists: file

     

    Note: when I go to the URL in the error (), I get a HTTP 404 on my browser as well.

  10. At this point I figured, maybe I have the wrong installer? So I go and delete my .minecraft folder in %appdata%

  11. Repeated steps 3. - 5. from above.

  12. Download "Installer" from https://files.minecraftforge.net/ (same ver 14.23.4.2747)

  13. Repeated step 7. & step 8. [attached "installer.log" attachment 2]

  14. Got this error: https://i.imgur.com/H1nXZTz.png

  15. Maybe wrong installer again? So I go and delete my .minecraft folder in %appdata%

  16. Repeated steps 3. - 5. from above.

  17. Attempt to download "Universal" from https://files.minecraftforge.net/ (same ver 14.23.4.2747)

  18. File reaches the  4.7MB/4.7 MB

  19. I get the "This type of file can harm your computer. Do you want to keep forge....jar anyway?" I click "Keep"

  20. I get a "Failed - Download Error" from my browser

  21. I switch browsers (tried Chrome, then Edge, then Firefox), all similar download fails.

  22. I tried flushing my DNS in command prompt "ipconfig" & tried using my VPN with the different browsers, no luck.

  23. I tried disconnecting my ethernet and using my 4G on my phone via tethering with the different browsers, no luck.

 

Also, tracert in command prompt to 158.69.55.219 [cerberus.minecraftforge.net] completes with no issues [may be useful information, I am not sure].

 

Please let me know if I am doing something wrong or missing a step.

Tried installing Forge on my laptop, works with no issues.

Going back to my PC, also tried reinstalling Java. No luck.

I can copy the universal jar file from my laptop folder to my PC, but it seems my PC can't access it.

I cannot copy / cut / move the universal jar file from any folder on my PC to another folder on my PC.

Using Windows Powershell (admin mode) xCopy command I get an "Access denied" output.

Using normal CTRL+C +V I get a File Access Denied: https://i.imgur.com/Cia7T1G.png [clicking Continue fails, get a loop with this: https://i.imgur.com/wPiEpJM.png)

Note: that DESKTOP-P7R04QU is my PC name.

The above is for the universal jar file at \libraries\net\minecraftforge\forge\1.12.2-14.23.4.2747

Getting a friend to download the universal file from source and sending it to me directly: similar download error as previous.

Getting a friend to send me a zip of that universal file: I can download the zip but unzipping it creates an empty folder without the jar file.

 

This doesn't seem to be an issue with Forge itself but some sort of config/permission issue somewhere on my PC. Although I'd be darned to know how to fix this. Has anyone else had a similar issue?
