For People who can't open the client on Windows 7
« on: December 08, 2011, 11:24:23 am »
For anyone getting errors such as "Could not find the main class: Gui. Program will exit."

The fix to this is to open Control Panel, search in the bar "environment variables"
Click "Edit the system environmental variables" Make sure you're in the advanced tab.
Then click Environmental Variables.


In the user variables check if you have PATH, or CLASSPATH. If either of these have this address C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin delete them, if not, leave them alone.

Then go down to the System variables and check to see if PATH/CLASSPATH has this address C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin if so, delete, if not leave it.

On a side note, make sure you remember what you had in CLASSPATH/PATH as it is needed to play other servers. For some reason on Windows 7 the client will only run when you have deleted them. Hope this helps ^^

Be VERY careful with this as it is possible you delete the wrong paths or classpaths. Java is not the only program that makes use of these paths. In some versions of windows 7 even windows uses it, so if you delete all of it some of the windows functions might not work anymore. Trust me, it happened to me.

DEFINATLY.



Also, anyone who tries to mess with their paths, you MUST put the ";" in there after a path, otherwise you'll screw it up.
COME AT ME BROOOOOO.

This is just how i fixed it guys :S and was very annoying to find out how, this method works for me but do it at your own risk if your client doesnt work
-EDIT Fixed guide to tell them only delete if they have this address , C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin in the path's

System restoration eats your pc's performance, and that's why its for emergencies only. Your pc will be a LOT slower if you restore it.

GUYS the guide has been edited to say that you only delete the PATH's when they contain a certain address, so please argue somewhere else.

These certain addresses are for the 64-bit version of Windows 7 only. 32-bit versions of Windows 7 do not have a Program Files(x86).
