      Description


      Workaround:

      From the minecraft forums, posted by user Tehyoda:

      1. Open notepad.
      2. Copy and paste the code below into the notepad window.
      3. Goto File => Save As... and save the file as "StartMC.bat" (with the quotes)
      4. Save the "StartMC.bat" file in the same directory as Minecraft.exe
      5. Use StartMC.bat to run Minecraft.

      Note: If you use minecraft.jar instead of minecraft.exe, change the filename in the script.

      The code:

      @start /B javaw -Dswing.systemlaf=com.sun.javax.swing.plaf.metal.CrossPlatformLookAndFeel -jar Minecraft.exe
      

      Clean Windows 7 install
      All drivers are updated

      I'm getting an error when trying to run the minecraft.exe.
      I recently downloaded it, and when i try to run it, it only gets this far:

      Bootstrap (v5)

      Please fix the error and restart.
      

      I tried this with both Java 32 bit and Java 64 bit, same result.
      I never got past that point.

      I haven't played this game for quite a while, so this is a clean install.
