Okay, it seems there's two interpretations for this question. Are you trying to make a mod or install a mod?

A lot of mods are for 1.6.4 right now, like forge, so i would recommend just getting forge for 1.6.4 or just waiting for forge to release to 1.7.4.

Note: you will need win rar. You can easily get it for free by googling it

Step one: Move your mouse to the top right corner of your screen and swipe down

Step two: Click on the search button and type %appdata% then hit enter

Step three: go into your .minecraft folder, then into your versions folder

Step four: Create a copy of the 1.7.4 folder

Step five: Rename it, then go inside and rename the two files (1.7.4 and 1.7.4.json) to the same name

Step six: Open the .json file in notepad

Step seven: it should say "id": "1.7.4", at the top. Change the 1.7.4 to the name

Step eight: save it and open the file that used to be called 1.7.4 with win rar

Step nine: open your mod in win rar and drag it into the 1.7.4 file in win rar

Step ten: Open minecraft, and on the launcher select "New Profile" (Bottom Left)

Step eleven: Go to the Use Version section and select the name of the file you renamed

Step twelve: Hit save profile, select it and play minecraft

it should work

Hope this helps - Frozen_chaos

Learn Java. Download Eclipse and set up MCP. I suggest looking at Scmowns2's forge tutorials. They're a little outdated (1.5) but it's a simple matter to update to a later version

What mods are you trying to install to 1.7.4 and what are their versions?
