Minecraft CurseForge Exit Code 1 Error Fixes

Do you encounter the “Exit Code 1” error when you open Minecraft using CurseForge mods? Here are some steps to help troubleshoot and maybe resolve the issue.

General Troubleshooting

  • Compatibility Verification: Check if you’re using a Forge version compatible with your Minecraft version. Check the mod or modpack’s CurseForge page for compatibility information.
  • Proper Reinstallation: Try to reinstall the game. This is to eliminate potential conflicts from old files:
    1. Uninstall/Delete Minecraft, including any Forge or mod-related files.
    2. Download and install Minecraft.
    3. Download and install your desired mods from CurseForge.

Java and Launcher

  • Java Version Check: Minecraft Forge typically requires Java 8 or later. Verify you have the correct Java version installed. Download latest version from the official Java website.
  • Launcher Profile Creation: Create new profile in your launcher specifically for Forge. This separates Forge and mods from potential conflicts with your main Minecraft profile.
  • Memory Allocation Adjustment: Minecraft with mods can be memory-intensive. Allocate sufficient RAM to Minecraft in your launcher settings.

Minecraft: CurseForge Mods and Software Check

  1. Mod Compatibility Evaluation: Incompatible or outdated mods can cause this error. Remove all CurseForge mods and reinstall them one by one. Reason for this is to determine which mod has an issue.
    • Windows + R: %appdata%> AppData> Roaming> .minecraft> mods. Try to remove all mods in this folder and re-open your Minecraft. If your Minecraft successfully loaded, this means one or more of the mods are incompatible with your game. Try adding 1 mod at a time then open Minecraft after each add until the same error appears. Delete the faulty mod and look for a different working one from CurseForge.
  2. Update Graphics Driver: Visit NVIDIA, AMD, or Intel (depending on what unit you have). Download and install the latest drivers. You may also update your drivers using your Graphics Card App from your PC.
  3. Check Firewall/Antivirus: Temporarily disable your antivirus or firewall. Once done, proceed to open your game and see if this works. If this works, check your antivirus restrictions and remove Minecraft from the list of restricted apps.
  4. Background Software Management: Close other programs running in the background. This might work if you’re running too many apps and lack RAM to open multiple apps.
