You need to open/run the file you get from the optifine website,

but how?

  • Go to java.com
  • Click the buttons to lead you to the download, their site should automatically give the correct java.
  • Run it and install
  • Good, you now got java!


    Recommended to close your game and the launcher before downloading optifine.

    But where to download optifine?

  • Firstly, go to optifine.net
  • Then go to Downloads and find the right version
  • Then click the download text
  • When it's downloaded, open/run it.
  • On some browsers, you may need to save it first and then open it. And make sure you open it using Java!
    In some very small amount of cases, you may need to
  • file explorer
  • Find file and right click
  • "Open with"
  • If not there, click "more apps"
  • Scroll down and "search for another app on this pc"
  • Find java folder
  • find bin folder
  • try javaw.exe
  • If it doesn't work, try each java .exe file you can find.

  • it should look like:

  • Optifine should tell if there is anything else you need to do. E.g you might need to run the vanilla version first.
