    so I'm downloading the new 1.8.6 BuildTools, well, trying too.

    Here's what I've got:
    start.sh - code within
    Code (Text):
    java -jar BuildTools.jar
    When I click on the start.bat it will open then close as soon as possible.

    The BuildTools.log is:
    Code (Text):
    You must run this jar through bash (msysgit)
    So I right clicked on the start.bat, then when to git bash, then it opened the cmd prompt. I then wrote:
    Code (Text):
    java -jar BuildTools.jar
    'Command not found'...

    Any help would be appreciated, I've read through the wiki's and threads, but haven't found a solution.

    Kind Regards,
  2. Try running
    Code (Text):
    <Path_To_Java_home>\bin\java -jar BuildTools.jar
    in git bash. For example,
    Code (Text):
    "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_31\bin\java" -jar BuildTools.jar
  3. @Inkzzzmc wait you opened cmd in git bash? You should just run "java -jar BuildTools.jar" inside git bash.

    That worked thanks! Well, this is what it's suppose to do? http://gyazo.com/4f9d8bcb18faee9e14a5ffe2f4242e4b carrys on downloading things for 10 minutes or whatever?
  5. It takes a ridiculous amount of time (at least of my computer). Beware that some jars it generates are not actually the finished product.
