I've recently downloaded Minecraft forge on my windows 10 operating system (not windows 10 edition Minecraft) I downloaded forge 1.7.2, but there was no Forge profile so I made my own in the suitable version. I now understand that that was a bad idea because it is NOT Minecraft forge. I can tell from the lack of the logo, forge version text and 'mods' folder. I made my own 'mods' folder and extracted the littleblocks.jar file (the mod I was downloading at the time) into it and ran Minecraft. Nothing. I hope someone can provide an explanation for the absence of Forge on my workstation.
EDIT:I seem to have fixed forge a fit. The actual profile is now there but when I lay it does nothing. The launcher loads, disappears and then there's nothing. Please?
