I've followed the instructions on this site for downloading and installing minecraft forge version 1.7.9 but when Java tries to install the files I get an error that I "need to run version 1.7.2 manually at least once." What does this mean, I've opened and played the game several times.

  • Are you installing the mods to a separate profile? Forge needs a place to put the java files, so unless you're modding an existing profile (bad idea), that place doesn't exist yet. – MBraedley Jun 18 '14 at 12:03
  • So, did it work? – Jonco98 Jun 19 '14 at 1:35
  • Working on it now, will let you know what happens. – Tony Jun 19 '14 at 5:42
  • I can't get it to work. I think I have 2 problems – Tony Jun 21 '14 at 21:15

    1. I have no idea what I'm doing and 2. I'm trying to install the Forge for version 1.7.2 and the game version I have is 1.7.9. it appears there is no Forge for 1.7.9 yet. – Tony Jun 21 '14 at 21:17

When installing forge you need to run the version that you are modding first and THEN install forge. So if I am going to mod 1.7.2 I would first run it normally and THEN install forge.

Run 1.7.2 at least once before you install it.
