Launcher 297 Will Not Launch Packs


Launcher Version: 297

Operating System: Windows 7 64 bit

Java Version: JRE 7u45 64 bit

Antivirus Program: ESET Smart Security

Description of Problem:

When I attempt to run any modpack, Minecraft does not launch. The launcher successfully downloads all files, but nothing happens upon completion. I have tried disabling antivirus and running as administrator, but this has no effect. I'm also unable to run any of the packs using the .jar files themselves, and I get the error message A Java Exception has occured.

Everyone seems to be having some sort of problem with the launcher. I was just able to get into the singleplayer screen then it crashes. I suggest maybe taking out any saves you desire to keep from the modpacks you have, delete the whole technic folder, and redownload. I sometimes get into a game and sometimes don't. Hopefully a patch is released for the launcher. It's all a waiting game now.
