Trying to Install Forge-Getting Unsupported Command

Recommended Posts

Hello.  I'm sure there is something simple I'm not doing, but I am stuck.  I have the latest Java installed, but when I try to install Forge with the installer I get this:

 

Unsupported Command: C:\Users\Kjmyl\Downloads\forge-1.5.2-31.1.37-installer(1)jar

 

Does anyone have an idea as to what I am doing wrong?

I apologize for my lack of tech saavy, but I'm not exactly sure what you are asking me to do.  I click the installer and get the message.  I haven't spelled anything.  Thank you for your reply.

Ah ok, so you typed out the error you got, not a copy/paste.

You should try running it from the commandline. If you're on windows, open the folder the installer is in, hold shift and right-click an empty space to get a menu, and choose open powershell (or command) here. Then type java -jar forge<TAB> (actually press tab, not <TAB>)

When I opened the window, I was unable to access command or powershell.  It didn't give me the option.  Any ideas why?  What am I doing wrong?

Are you holding down shift on the keyboard when you right-click?

Also, make sure you're not right-clicking on a file.

That does populate, but I wasn't sure what to do next.  I hit enter and got this:

 

java-jar : The term 'java-jar' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program.
Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
