Unable to launch

Question

Launcher Version: 3.1.3

Operating System: Win 7 64 bit

Java Version: Version 7 Update 9

Antivirus Program: N/A

Description of Problem:

I'm probably just retarded, but I seem to have messed something up in the updating process. I've deleted all the Appdata folders for both MC and Tekkit and reinstalled the lot. Did the same with Java, fresh install of that too. Tried running it as Admin, still nothing.

Nothing seems to help, if I've posted this wrong please accept my apologies, this is driving me slightly nuts.

Error Messages:

"could not load c:\xxx\appdata" etc etc. Click here:

Then an error message stating that the launcher is unable to edit the registry, like this:

Error Log:

Launcher doesn't get that far.

You shouldn't just delete Java's directory

Always uninstall programs through their Uninstaller if there is one, simply deleting the directory might screw up things, which is probably the case here

If no one's got a solution to this, can anyone tell me how to completely remove mc and Tekkit from my system to start afresh?

Simple, you head to %appdata% and delete the .minecraft and .techniclauncher folders

Be sure to backup your saves if you have any

Install both the 64 bit and the 32 bit java. This helped me when I had issues. Then, if you can't launch from the supplied launcher file, go to %appdata% and into the .techniclauncher folder, use the technic launcher jar as your startup instead. It should work. If it doesn't, then I would check into installing on a usb drive.

Hey thanks for the reply mate. I've still been doing some more work on this, and I think I'm gradually getting closer. There's now a log file, which has this written in it:

Windows 7 64-bit

Contents of C:\Program Files\Java

    C:\Program Files\Java\jre7

Contents of C:\Program Files\Java (x86)

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6

Registry points to C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\java.exe

Java not found in user's PATH. (This is normal)

JAVA_HOME is not set. (This is normal)

So it's obivously something to do with Java. I've uninstalled Java completely, run CCleaner to remove any dead entries from the registry, and re-installed it again. Still no joy.

Have you actually tried setting Java in your PATH? It complained that you haven't, so it's worth a try.

Well your computer certainly seems to think that it's not there. Redo it to make sure it's set correctly.

Deleted the Technic folder.

Deleted Minecraft folder.

Uninstalled Java.

Tried again, with both 32 and 64 bit JREs. Still nothing.

This isn't worth the frustration any more really.

Like I said, I think your Java path may be incorrect. Redo it and check whether that makes a difference.

So uninstall it again and install it elsewhere? I've been using the default install address so far, that's given no luck. Where would you recommend I install it? Does that even matter?

Sorry for my stupid questions, I'm not very good at this kind of thing.

Just check that you have the default address properly written. A grammatical or spelling mistake could break the whole thing, so check it again. If that doesn't work, I have no idea.

It's definitely something along those lines, the log has changed yet again:

Windows 7 64-bit

Contents of C:\Program Files\Java (x86)

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\bin

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\COPYRIGHT

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\lib

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\LICENSE

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\README.txt

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\release

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\THIRDPARTYLICENSEREADME-JAVAFX.txt

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\THIRDPARTYLICENSEREADME.txt

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\Welcome.html

Registry points to C:\Program Files (x86)\java\bin\java.exe

Java not found in user's PATH. (This is normal)

JAVA_HOME is not set. (This is normal)

I'm thinking this is something rather simple, but I just can't put my finger on it...

I can't, the .techniclauncher folder is empty. I download the EXE and that's as far as I get. Double click on it, it creates an empty .techniclauncher folder, then moans that it can't access the registry or logs.

Download the .jar launcher

Open the directory its saved too

Hold shift and then right click

Choose "open command window" or something similar

Run the command-

"path to java.exe" -jar technic-launcher-latest.jar

or whatever the jar launcher is saved as

You must include the "" on javas path as it will take the space in "progran files" at 2 seperate commands

Paste all output here
