Text Tutorial

  1. Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment 8.

  2. Get rid of your old Java 6 or Java 7 installation.

  3. If you still can’t launch, go to Minecraft.net and download the latest Minecraft launcher.


  • Do not skip step 2. It is important.

  • Can’t find your old Java installation? It is usually located at C:\Program Files\Java\jreX.X.X_XX.

  • Still can’t find it? Look where you installed Java 8, it’s usually right next to that.

  • Use the Minecraft.jar launcher, not Minecraft.dmg.
