Here is a screen capture I took. Nothing outputs into the log, it just crashes, as shown. I'm using windows 10, and JRE is properly installed.

By properly installed I mean I had downloaded it for use on another program because it needed it to run. When I installed it using the installation program it opened a webpage to verify that it was "properly installed." I'm new to using java for anything so I'm not very sure as to what it all meant.

Some more info: the game would still crash like this before I installed java, so I don't quite think that's the problem.

Below is a screen capture of what it looks like when it crashes. minecraftcrash.png


Here's some additional info. It's the entire output log from when it crashed.

  • Please define "properly installed". – aytimothy May 18 '17 at 5:47
  • I don't know if it is installed in the same place in windows 10 as this looks to be the store app? But go to your appdata folder, to the minecraft folder. There should be a folder there with error logs. We'll need that to help you. – Robin May 18 '17 at 7:19

    The whole problem may stem from that JRE being "properly installed". Normally, Minecraft comes with its own JRE. all of it with its whole environment contained within Minecraft directory. If your separate JRE install is leaking its environmental variables or other stuff to the Minecraft JRE, the game will crash - version mismatch etc. Uninstall your JRE unless you really need it for something else. – SF.

  • Crash log would also help. See point 2 in: gaming.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/9943/… – DJ Pirtu May 19 '17 at 12:02

    To quote the link and section I just mentioned: "You can find full error reports in your game directory, inside the crash-reports folder, sorted by date and time. Don't just post the last few lines from the console, as there is usually not enough information to be found there." If that info's out of date, Google should be able to help you. – DJ Pirtu May 19 '17 at 15:47
