Error occured during downloading the game.

    I recently formatted my PC (Windows 7 Ultimate).
    I can't get FTB to work ever since.
    The login works, but whenever I select a modpack and press launch, I get the error:
    "Error occured during downloading the game".
    I've tried Force Update, I installed the normal minecraft, but nothing seems to work.
    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks in advance

    Does normal minecraft run or not? Did you reinstall java 7 on your machine?

    Normal minecraft does work, yes.
    I did install Java, yes.

    This is what comes in the console after clicking 'Launch'.



    My connection to the internet is fine though...

    Where are you living? Do you have an AV or Firewall enabled?

    I live in Belgium.
    Before the format, everything worked perfectly.
    And not as far as I know of.

    Belgium should be the UK Repo, didn't hear of any problems there. Strange.
    Your connected by cable or wireless?

    Your speedtest.net shows normal values i presume. Strange things is that you get connection failed. Like he can't find the server (or being blocked).
    You have some netwerk management software installed (intel has some of thos annoying things)? Or did you install your networkdrivers at all?

    I didn't install drivers, but I didn't do that last time either :p

    maybe try it, often the mainbord drivers install network connection drivers and other nice boosts for components

    My laptop had an unexpected shutdown last week and I can no longer use my internet with an ethernet cable. I guess it had a fight with the driver and the driver moved out!
    If I were you, I'd check the device manager to make sure that the same thing didn't happen to you

    I installed the needed drivers, I reinstalled java and I checked the ethernet thing, nothing works...

    Try wifi

    Wifi doesn't work either...

    I just noticed though, when I launch FTB, this error is near the top of the console:

    Could this be causing the problem?
    I did install java twice, so I doubt I'm doing anything wrong there.

    Please take your FTB folder out of the location that it is in. Place it in a new folder on your desktop, with no spaces or special characters in the file path. Change the install directory (in the options tab of the launcher) to the new location.
    Make sure your anti-virus' and firewalls are not blocking your access, and that you have administrative rights on the computer.
    If the new location works, you may move the folder that you placed on your desktop to another location (such as a games folder).
    GuildMaster and Noodelz like this.

    Oooohh, that was one very stupid mistake!
    The install destination didn't exist...
    Sorry for the trouble.
