  • Modpacks not launching / "The System cannot find the file Specified" error (Windows OS) ▾

    If you're trying to launch modpacks but nothing is happening, or the error message "The System cannot find the file Specified" shows up, please try the following solutions:

    • Reinstalling the Launcher

      1. Close the CurseForge app (if running)
      2. Open your Minecraft modding folder (the one set in the app's settings)
      3. Rename the folder called 'Install' (in order to create a backup of it, just in case)
      4. Relaunch the CurseForge app
      5. Click 'Continue'
      6. Try to launch your modpacks again

    • Fixing the Command Prompt (cmd.exe)
      You may experience this issue if CurseForge cannot access the Command Prompt (C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe) file in your system.
      If the file has been modified, or its name has been changed - please restore it to its original state and try to launch your modpacks again.
      If you can run the Command Prompt but it closes as soon as it starts - that could indicate a corruption due to malware. To fix the corruption, you can follow the steps in this guide, but please note that it should be done very carefully as it requires you to handle your system's registry.
