    As the title says the launcher will not work for me. I've got Java 1.8.0_231-b11 (latest Java) and i just downloaded the FTB launcher and it wont do anything, did i get the wrong java or what?

    You gave it a day. This forum is not frequented as much as it used to be, you've got to give these things time. In the meantime, is there any further detail you could provide, any error messages or anything?

    no error message no nothing i double click the FTBLaunch.exe and nothing happens.

    OK, that's very odd. In that case all I can suggest is deleting it and any related files and re-downloading it.

    I wish I had a better suggestion for you. The fact that the .exe file for the launcher won't even run is really... weird. You haven't got something that blocks exe files from running have you? My Windows 10 laptop has that and every time I want to run something I've downloaded I have to give it permission.

    honestly im stumped at what can be causing it, i even run it as admin and nothing....... im so close to asking a dev to teamviewer in to try and fix it... but sadly im in australia and with time zones im out of options

    looks like even vanilla wont run properly, i run out of ram :/ even though i set it to 4gb of ram.... i think i need to just wipe my drive and try to start again......

    Running with the same setup on Linux, and this is what I get trying to run on terminal:

    bash $ java -jar FTB_Launcher.jar

    [23:25:05] [DEBUG] Main.main:174: Launcher PID: 1603

    Are you the same person as the original poster?
    (as you're writing "that you're running with the same setup on Linux")

    What version of java are you running?
    Show result of:
    java -version

    Having a similar issue where my Feed The Beast launcher will not even open. I have done the usual reinstall Java/Minecraft/FTB launcher and have had no luck.
    When I run java -version, I get
    java version "1.8.0_231"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_231-b11)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.231-b11, mixed mode)

    EDIT: I went through removing unneeded programs through task manager and I ended up closing, CrystalDisk, PnkBster (Punk Buster I believe), and Everything (file searcher) and the launcher works now, good luck to everyone else having this issue!
