Same here. Are you also on Mac? It looks like there is no way to log in with a Microsoft account on the Mac client. And because Mojang accounts were deprecated Dec 1st, 2020 you can only have a Microsoft account.
Hi! This happened to me and I was digging: It turns out that this is specific to mac, the Curseforge Discord have this command set:
Currently there are problems with mac computers using the wrong java versions. This isn't easily fixed as the launcher doesn't support the selection of java to run with. Until a fix comes you will need to use another launcher. You can find a list with the !launchers command.
I just bought minecraft java edition for my mac, and I have the same issues as you guys. I am a newbie and can use pointers on the !launchers command to use the alternate launchers for my mod. Any links or pointers are greatly appreciated.
When asked for your login credentials, It is seeking credentials (likely) for your Mojang account that you had already associated
Hit "Go back" and you'll be taken to an "account" selection screen, Where you will see that the account its trying to run is likely marked "Moj ang" (username)
you will also see "Add account"
Click "add account"
and you will be prompted with a window that says "Microsoft account" and "Mojang account" in large green buttons (or at least was the case for me)
Simply click the Microsoft account login, and it will start opening another minecraft launcher window, Processing, and prompt you for the new credentials, plug them in, Processing, it'll close the window and begin thinking on the original window - processing it'll open another launcher window, greeting the microsoft account, "lets go" The window will eventually close and the original window will be logged in on and have the modpack you were launching ready - as far as I can tell, It will then, from there, work just like nothing changed at all. - well. Aside from in the corner left top It'll show a microsoft account
Just downloaded CurseForge, I've got Minecraft on windows 7 and when I go to settings to add a game it has Minecraft ready automatically but when I click on it to try and add it says "set up CurseForge's Minecraft modding folder" and I press the recommended option that it gives, I press on it and then it comes up with "hold tight! We're getting Minecraft ready for modding...", it has a bar that goes up to the top but then it just stays there and isn't connecting or doing anything.
I don't know what to do, Does anyone have this problem or know how to fix this?
