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:


  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.
  3. Missing language/translations
    The localization feature will be added in the app's upcoming versions.
  4. CurseForge appears blurry/green/botched
    Please try this solution
  5. Newly approved project is available on the website but not in the app
    There is a certain delay from the time a new project (mod, addon, etc.) is available on the website and until it's available in the app. We are working to reduce this delay!
  6. Account CF transfer issues 
    Please contact us with your username, Twitch name and email so we can check the issue.
  7. Website's file management buttons disappear (in small screens/resolution)
    We are working on a fix.
  8. Approved projects appearing in Client but not in website
    We are working on a fix.
  9. Approved projects appearing in Client only after many hours

    Some locations worldwide might have slower caching times then others. Please wait 24 hours prior to opening a ticket.

  10. Logos appear in the 'Screenshots' section.

    We are working on a fix.


  1. "The system cannot find the file specified"/"Failed to download file" error
    Please check out this solution first. If it didn't help, try installing the required Forge version.
  2. "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!
  3. "Could not establish trust relationship for the SSL/TLS secure channel" error
    We are working on a fix. In the meantime, please make sure you have all the latest Windows OS updates installed. 
  4. Trouble launching a custom profile
    You can ask for help from the Minecraft community in the official CurseForge Discord Server.
  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 will not be able to detect and display them properly. Please install the mods through the app itself.
  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 are trying to launch modpacks normally (not offline) and are still receiving this error - please contact us.


  1. 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.
  2. Can't find my WoW game / Endless loader "Forging library"
    We may have found the source of this issue, which seems to be with the IPv6 Ethernet Protocol. Please disable it and try again:
    • Open Windows's 'Run' tool (Win key +R) 
    • Type in ncpa.cpl and hit 'OK' 
    • Right-click on your Ethernet Connection and select 'Properties'
    • Uncheck the box for 'Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)' and click 'OK'
  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.

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 Steam. We are working on a fix!
  3. Kerbal Space Program cannot be detected
    This can happen if you installed the game through Steam. We are working on a fix!

If you wish to report an issue that is not listed here, please open a ticket describing the issue in as much detail as you can (including logs and relevant screenshots). Otherwise, you can report the issue or share your general feedback in the CurseForge Ideas site.

Thank you for your understanding and contribution to the new CurseForge app :)
