      Description

      The Minecraft server cannot be started on Windows 7 64bit, using either the .jar file, or the Minecraft_server.exe file.

      The following error is received when attempting to execute the jar file:

      C:\Users\user\Desktop\Minecraft Stuff\server>java -Xmx2048M -Xms2048M -jar minecraft_server.1.7.10.jar nogui
      Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

      C:\Users\user\Desktop\Minecraft Stuff\server>pause
      Press any key to continue . . .

      Running the exe will simply terminate the program with a "A java Exception has occured" dialogue box.
