      1.12.2 was running well with forge. In launcher I switched to 1.7.10 to have some old mods running. Now there is empty launcher window (first white, later black). Error found in C:\Users\Marcin\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\launcher_log.txt :

      I tried to uninstall Minecraft, deleted directory C:\Users\Marcin\AppData\Roaming\.minecraft\ (together with mods) installed again but it didn't help. It is possible to click something in launcher window because mouse cursor changes its icon while moving through it. I couldn't google for any workaround to fix this situation.
