We are excited to have you join us!


At the moment, the app is still in its Beta phase, which means that there are certain issues and bugs that you may be experiencing, but thanks to you and the community of CurseForge, we are now on our way to solving them.
This is a list of the most common ones:


General ▾

  1. Missing language/translations
    The localization feature will be added in the app's upcoming versions.
  2. "Object reference not set" error
    This has been fixed in version 167.1. If the issue persists, please open a ticket.
  3. CurseForge Account transfer issues 
    Make sure you checked out the account migration flow first. If the issues persists, please contact us with your CurseForge username, Twitch username and email so we can check the issue.
  4. "An exception occurred during a webclient request"
    Try restarting the application. If this persists, it usually indicates a slow internet connection. Try closing other network draining applications, or using the service at another time when the bandwidth is not under heavy load.

Installation ▾

  1. The Overwolf/CurseForge installer does not launch (Windows OS)
    Please make sure to enable the .NET Framework 3.5 feature or try the setup installer instead.
  2. The Overwolf/CurseForge installer does not work properly
    Please make sure that Overwolf is not blocked (and is whitelisted) by your Anti-virus/Firewall. Please visit our Overwolf Installation error article for further details and solutions.

Authors ▾

  1. Newly approved project is available on the website but not in the app
    We have made some changes that should improve the delay from the time a project or update is approved on the website and until it's also available in the app. We are still verifying this solution, if you encounter long delays please open a ticket with supporting screenshots including your project name and project page.
  2. Alpha, Beta and Experimental Files do not appear in search (website and app)
    This is not an error - you must have at least one approved Release file for the project to appear in the website and app search. We are working on clarifying this as part of the UI in the file submissions area.
  3. Project Logos appear in the 'Screenshots' section

    We are working on a fix.

  4. "You do not have permission to access this page" / Upload Files and Images buttons missing
    If you are experiencing a permission issue with managing your project, you or the project owner might need to click 'Refresh permissions' in the member management tab of the project. If you are the Owner of the project, contact our support with your project link, we are working on a fix.

  5. Automated project submission rejection response refers to the ‘Twitch Desktop App’
    We are aware that there are still automated processes that refer users to fix projects and submissions through the Twitch app. This is, of course, a mistake, and we will fix all canned answers in the near future.

  6. Export incorrectly missing or misplacing mods in the overrides folder
    Please make sure you followed our guide. If you still encounter this problem, please open a ticket and attach a Zip file of your 'Instance' folder (if the file is too large please provide a cloud storage service link such as Google Drive, Dropbox etc.).

  7. Mods incorrectly appear under the 'overrides' folder after export

    This happens due to an error with the profile exporter, and we are learning the issue so we can fix it.

    A workaround for some cases is achieved by removing the mods that appear in the overrides folder, and then re-adding them through the CurseForge client. You must then export again, and can check if the fix helped by checking the overrides folder before submitting the project to CurseForge.

    Note - this issue is only relevant in case you wish to export and upload the project. The profile can be imported and played without any changes required.

  8. Manually Triggering the Auto-Packager

    For those authors affected by the packager not being triggered and thus no new files for download being generated, there is a way to manually poke the packager into activating for your project: the webhooks normally used for external repositories on e.g. GitHub (see Automatic Packaging article). Doing a POST request to that URL (https://www.curseforge.com/api/projects/{projectID}/package?token={token}) will also work for projects using a repository on Curseforge. You should be able to do such a request using e.g. CURL (curl -X POST -d '' 'https://www.curseforge.com/api/projects/{projectID}/package?token={token}') projectID is the numerical ID that is displayed on your project's CurseForge page in the top-right box token is a valid API token you can create under https://www.curseforge.com/account/api-tokens

  9. 2FA is not working or not displaying the email address input box for PayPal payment
    Please review our 2FA troubleshooting article.


Minecraft ▾

  1. "The system cannot find the file specified"/"Failed to download file" error
    Please check out this solution first. If it doesn't help, try installing the required Forge version.
  2. "CMD configuration may be causing issues" \ Nothing happens when trying to launch a modpack 

    Please try this solution.

  3. "The specified path, file name... or both are too long" error 
    As a workaround solution please change your modding directory and make sure not to choose a folder located under your OneDrive directory. We are working on a fix! Are you sure that the path is not too long? send us the full path (including mod/modpack name) and logs in a ticket.
  4. Trouble launching a custom profile
    Additionally, if you have incompatibilities in your modpack between mods, or between the modloader and the mods you're trying to run, you can ask for help from the Minecraft community in the official CurseForge Discord Server. Check out our article as well for extra tips!
  5. Some mods are missing from modpack/profile
    If you've added mods manually to a modpack's or profile's folder, the CurseForge app might not be able to detect and display them properly. Please install the mods through the app itself.
    If the error persists, please contact our support.
  6. "Could not verify Minecraft version" error when launching a modpack offline
    The CurseForge app does not support offline play at the moment, if you have this issue please try restarting your CurseForge app  and try again. We also found that this can happen with modpacks that were installed from the Twitch client. Please save a copy of your 'Save' folder (located in the modpack's folder) and completely reinstall the modpack.
  7. "Java Runtime Environment is missing or out of date"
    Please install or update your Java Runtime version. For more information, please visit here.
  8. Minecraft not launching, no error message
    While this is tricky to reproduce, some users found that deleting the 'Install' folder in the modding directory, or if you are missing Java (see 'Java' section in this article). We also recommend checking in the project page on the website to check if this is a known issue for the specific modpack.

WoW ▾

  1. Updates for addons don't appear properly
    There are several different symptoms for this issue which we are working on fixing. This can happen in the app launch or when the app was idle for a longer period of time.
    Quick workarounds include manually clicking the Refresh button, re-sorting the Action column and restarting the app.
  2. Packager not working
    This includes both the SVN-Repos and Git. We are also aware of committing errors.
    We are looking into this and will update when we have resolved this issue. We apologize for the inconvenience.
    For authors - look under the Authors segment in this page for a workaround.
  3. Can't add WoW to the app (macOS users)
    Please make sure to choose the game's directory (_retail_ / _classic_) and not the game file itself.
  4. App does not detect all of my installed instances
    In certain cases the app defaults to Retail and does not pick up on additional installed instances (Beta, PTR, Classic etc.). We are working on a fix, as a workaround you can also scan to add games from the settings menu.

Other Games ▾

  1. Stardew Valley cannot be detected
    You will need to download and install SMAPI and then relaunch CurseForge in order for the game to be properly detected.
  2. Surviving Mars cannot be detected
    This can happen if you installed the game through Microsoft Store. We are working on a fix!
    *We may have a workaround, please contact us for more information.
  3. Kerbal Space Program cannot be detected
    This can happen if you installed the game through Steam. We are working on a fix!
  4. Kerbal Space Program incorrect file structure
    GameData folder is currently incorrectly generated, we are working on this.
  5. How do Among Us mods work?

    We wrote an article for this, and most of the mods have specific instructions.
