I cannot run Minecraft.exe

#1soysturmPosted 1/22/2011 1:50:44 AM
I'm not really sure why I'm having this problem but blah blah blah

anyway

I bought Minecraft a few months ago, and have tried to run it on my compy. I can barely run it in my browser (although it's a laggy nightmare), so I figured running it alone would help out. Every time I open the file, however, I hear that DUN sound that Windows makes when an error or something occurs, and the file doesn't open. I don't get an error message or anything like that. I simply doesn't open.

so like what's going on guys help me

What does the error message say?
#3tRiXaRe4KiDzPosted 1/22/2011 1:56:35 AM
Oh, sorry, I misread it.

Try redownloading it from the main website?
I'm sorry, I don't know what to recommend.

some problems in minecraft are due to the security of the folder you run it from. Using it through a shortcut can solve some problems.

Have you tried deleting system32?


Did you download both versions that are offered on the site?

On one of my PC's I get a graphic cards driver error something, idk. Maybe that.
