Here are some troubleshooting steps you can try to fix the Java Runtime Error in Minecraft:
- Check your Java version. Minecraft requires a minimum of Java 8 to run. You can check your Java version by opening a command prompt and typing
java -version. If your version is lower than 8, you can download the latest version from the Oracle website.
- Make sure that you have the latest Minecraft updates. Minecraft is constantly being updated, and sometimes these updates can fix bugs that cause Java Runtime Errors. You can check for updates by opening the Minecraft Launcher and clicking on the “Check for Updates” button.
- Update your graphics drivers. Outdated graphics drivers can also cause Java Runtime Errors in Minecraft. You can download the latest graphics drivers for your graphics card from the manufacturer’s website.
- Try running Minecraft in compatibility mode. Running Minecraft in compatibility mode can sometimes fix Java Runtime Errors. To do this, right-click on the Minecraft Launcher and select “Properties”. In the Compatibility tab, check the box next to “Run this program in compatibility mode for:” and select “Windows 7” from the dropdown menu.
- Reinstall Minecraft. If you’ve tried all of the above and you’re still getting Java Runtime Errors, you can try reinstalling Minecraft. This will remove any corrupted files that may be causing the problem.
