GetAddonFile error

  • Tech Support section is for getting help with FTB related problems. If there's a repeatable issue that can be labeled as a bug, then please use the issue tracker for the pack or the app at GitHub issue trackers - If there's no repository for a pack that means that the pack is old and/or will not be updated. Eventual bugs for older packs will not be fixed.

I managed to fix this error by going to the directory I setup for Minecraft installs and adding Everyone to the permissions with Full Control. However, once I did that I started getting an error:

Failed to get mod loader from manifest!

So that is 0-2 so far with this Curse launcher. I'm not a big fan at all

EDIT: I managed to get it working by running the Curse Client as Administrator

I'm getting this error. first time user, trying to install skyfactory and am at wits end. It will not access anything, not even letting me create a custom minecraft profile.
Installed twitch as a admin, set start up to jar type, set preferred release to release. manually added the program to my exception list on my firewall.

I've tried:
-Running Twitch as an administrator
-Reinstalling Twitch
-Reinstalling minecraft
-restarting the pc
-installing different modpacks
That's..,,everything''

STILL nothing anyone here can do anything about, so no need for bumping with that kind of information.

Then why is this Tech Support forum here? -_-

I'm also getting this same error, have found no resolution and have gotten no answer from twitch support in over a week and a half. Thank goodness the OLD ftb launcher still works or I wouldn't be able to play. Maybe I should just take the hint, eh?

The tech support forum here is to support the packs and issues with getting the packs to run. But we can't cover what is obviously an issue with the twitch/curse launcher. Now if it was an issue with the world not loading or a specific mod causing a crash we will try our best to help.

Ah, yes. You're right of course - I apologize. I was frustrated and took it out on you, and you guys don't deserve that for the hard work you do +)

Incidentally, it "just started working" so I have the pack now. =P

Hey all, I did some research and I've found a fix for this issue.

If you go to %appdata%->.minecraft ensure you have a folder called mods created in there.

I have had this issue for about 3 weeks now. I watched a few youtube videos and watched one person physically go into his .minecraft directory and create the mods folder. I gave it a shot and that seemed to have cured my issue with getting this GetAddOnFile Error.

I hope this helps some of you.

I've had this problam for awhile now. I can't create custom profiles or download modpacks. If someone can help that would be amazing.

Ok i have fixed this problem after a while and it was so f***ing simple.

You just have to go to settings of twich/minecraft turn of "Let Twich Manage Mods for This game" and create a folder C:/ftb modpacks and switch original mod location to what you just made and thats it xD
