There I was going to play on the technic laucher on the new pc, when suddenly ... the mods do not open I put java 7 and it still does not help ;-) SOMEBODY HELP ME
Edit: Problem solved. See below. As the title says, I'm trying to run the TechnicLauncher on OS X 10.10.2 (Yosemite). I've installed Java 8 U45, and I've confirmed that it is installed correctly by using the Java version checker at java.com . The behaviour I'm encountering depends on which JAR I run. The current JAR for OS X starts the install. It presents the install dialogue box ("Jar Launcher" process is running), and I click "Install", and then it just terminates and presents a dialogue box (from a new process called "Download Java Components") saying "To view this web content, you need to install the Java Runtime Environment. Click 'More Info...' to visit the website for the Java Runtime Environment." Well, at least that's what happened the first time. Now all I'm getting is straight-up termination of the Jar Launcher and Java processes, and straight to the Download Java Components process. In the technic application support folder, it created the assets folder (empty), the logs folder, and settings.json . (If I remove these additions, the installer dialogue will appear again the first time I try to launch TechnicLauncher.jar, but then it's back to the straight-to-failure bint.) The contents of the log (all two lines of it) is here: http://pastebin.com/dk5zakyS The contents of the settings.json file is here: http://pastebin.com/KEpW1mCp So, yeah. I'm stumped. It looks like Java is not initializing properly. Except it is. Except it isn't. Problem Solved On OS X 10.10, it's necessary to install both the JRE and JDK (Java Development Kit) before the JRE can actually be run. Otherwise the shell path isn't updated and so the TechnicLauncher's invoking of the java command fails. It'd be very, very useful if this very out-of-date FAQ were updated to reflect these requirements (as well as the update to Java 8 U45, and the fact that Java now uses a prefpane file to manage preferences, not a separate application): https://technicpack.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/203276609-How-to-install-upgrade-Java
I've tried both Java 7 64-bit and Java 8 64-bit and both all cause Technic Launcher to stop working all of a sudden. Only 32-bit is working now.. I need 64-bit so I don't have to uninstall Java 32-bit and reinstall Java 64-bit every time I need to use a 64-bit Java application. I am using Windows 7 64-bit. This never used to happen although..
