Before proceeding with the installation of a mod, however, keep in mind something often overlooked but actually very important. Although generally the procedure to follow is the one indicated below and is valid for almost all of the modified versions of the game, in some cases it may be different depending on the mod chosen.

Consequently, in order to avoid errors and problems, I suggest you, before putting into practice the instructions you find below, to always consult with extreme attention any instructions attached to the reference Web page of the mod and in the case of sticking to them rather than to the passages that I am about to show you.

Once that is done, copy and paste in the address bar that is at the top of the window that opened on the desktop to the following location C: Users [username] AppData Roaming .minecraft then press the button Submit sulla tastiera from the PC.

At this point, double click on the folder bin and select the file minecraft.jar right clicking. From the context menu that is shown to you select the option Open with.

If not, try to carry out the procedure in question from the beginning (maybe you missed some steps) or, as indicated in the previous lines, check that on the mod download page there are no installation steps other than those in question (and in case follow those rather than my directions).
