The Java JAR file could not be launched. On a mac


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,


I'm trying to extract the files from forge-1.12.2-

I've done this before, many time to create a technicpack modpack. I'm running java 8 v212 and just updated to Mac OS X Catalina 10.15.6

When I double click the  forge-1.12.2- file, I get an error window saying The Java JAR file "forge-1.12.2-" could not be launched.

So okay , this happened to me a month ago for the first time and I was able in terminal to run it by typing java -jar ~/users/user/Desktop/forge-1.12.2-

But now when I try it in the terminal, I get this:


We appear to be missing one or more essential library files.

You will need to add them to your server before FML and Forge will run successfully.java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: net.minecraft.launchwrapper.Launch

I can't find anything online regarding this little problem. 


Would anyone know anything about this?
