Hi there! I do apologize if this is question is a bit too similar to other questions but I couldn’t find anything specific to my question so hopefully it’s okay to post this.
I’m trying to install quilt for a personal server, as instructed on your website. The first time I installed it, the only files in the server folder were the ones under the “library” folder - the two launcher JARs were missing. So I was confused and looked up what to do about it, and found out they were just missing. Oh okay, so I reinstalled the server and realized it manually unclicked the “download server .jar” option (which was enabled by default) when I was choosing my selections. I figured that must have been the culprit, reinstalled, and sure enough the two .jars appeared. Perfect!
Foolishly, because I’m not a programmer and didn’t know how exactly to make a .bat folder, I clicked on the two .jars seeing if they would let me run the server without running the .bat. No luck so I tried doing the .bat. I got a crash report that I couldn’t read (again, not a programmer). But I figured it had to be because of the extra files running the two .jars had created, and decided to just re-install the server and move the other to my recycling bin.
But when I did that, the .jars weren’t present in the new file. Concerned, I figured the problem must somehow be that the two .jars are present in another folder in my recycling bin (I know there is no logical reason for this). So of course, like a logical person (I am being sarcastic) I deleted it. Tried installing it again and the .jars still aren’t there. Uh oh! Tried re-installing the installer, no luck. Tried restarting my computer, no luck.
I’ve heard that Java won’t install instances of quilt for some users (obviously using the java loader since im trying to install a server) but the post I saw about it said the quilt window just kept loading forever. That’s not the case for me - every time quilt lets me do it, and says its successful, I’m just specifically missing the .jar files except for that one time when the stars aligned and I managed to install it. I’ve tried re-installing a comical amount of times and haven’t had any luck.
I was wondering if my firewall could be blocking it but I don’t think it is. I’m attempting to install this on a pretty old windows 7 computer so I can’t guarantee that some secret antivirus that I don’t know about is blocking it but windows isn’t quarantining it and so idk where else it would be. And like, it installed once just fine, and I’ve restarted my computer since then so it shouldn’t see it as spam.
Any chance anything can be done about this or am I just outta luck since java can be temperamental? Any help is appreciated, thanks!
