      Description

      To reproduce:

      Existing Configuration:

      • Launch a profile previously created
      1. Cannot launch: The game directory is invalid or inaccessible. Existing: directory

      Create New or Edit Configuration with the Game Directory Option:

      • Create a new Configuration, or edit an existing Configuration, with a custom Game Directory (I've tested this path: C:/ .)
      1. Go back to "edit" the new/edited Configuration: Game Directory is switched on, but the text box is blank.
      2. Try to launch with the new/edited Configuration: The game directory is invalid or inaccessible.
      3. Check %appdata%/.minecraft/launcher_profiles.json: "gameDir": is not recorded for the new/edited Configuration but those previously created with custom Game Directories.

      Edit: I previously thought the bug only exists on previously created configs with custom Game Directories. Turns out, affects those using default directory too.
