Okay, so my Minecraft launcher isn't working. I'll open it, it runs in the toolbar, no errors show or anything, but when I click it it does not open. I've uninstalled it and reinstalled it, repaired it, rebooted my pc. I'm running windows 7. The only two files in .minecraft folder are launcher_log and launcher_profiles:json and thats it.

You can try running without your firewall on, that tends to get in the way of getting files sometimes.

the .minecraft folder has loads of files in, if all that is inside is

"launcher_log and launcher_profiles:json"

there is obviously a game missing, it has not been installed correctly
