Deleting META-INF folder crashes Minecraft?

Sometimes, we all need a little general help.

Trying to install Modloader for Minecraft by inserting the files in Minecraft.jar. When I delete the META-INF folder, Minecraft crashes when I try to play it. Any help?

I don't think the META-INF file is the issue, but likely is a modloader issue. It could have been a human error. Just get a fresh jar file and try again, then if the issue is fixed, have fun!

The same thing happened when I deleted META-INF while trying to install Mine Little Pony mod (Non Modloader edition).

Try and get a new copy of minecraft.jar and delete the META-INF folder without installing any mods. Try to run the game and see if it still crashes.

Move your save folder to a different location and delete all the contents of the minecraft folder.

Download a new copy of minecraft from the website and then try as suggested above.

Delete bin folder.

Then run the game to get a fresh new one then exit the game then install ModLoader and delete META-INF only without installing any other mods and see what happens when playing the game.

Mine Little Pony might need some other mods.
