I am currently running Windows 10 and am trying to open several installer .jar files for a game. In order to open the, I downloaded Java as that seems to be the most straight-forward way to do so. However, I am unable to actually "open" Java, I can go into the settings and such, and the whole folder appears to be there. When I go to launch the jar file with it, Java does not appear as an option to open it with. I have tried selecting "select a file to open with" and then navigating to the Java folder and have tried using many different files within the bin folder, however none of them do anything when I select them, except for "javaws" which just opens an error box reading "Could not launch parse file. Error at line 1."
I am happy to help with any additional information that may be necessary in order to figure this out, however I am not the most "code-literate" so the more detailed the instructions the better. Thanks so much for your help!
