What does not

Occasionally, text in Minecraft will appear in a strange but readable font, specifically at the world generation and loading screens.


What was not tested

Nothing. Everything was tested.

Additional Comments

Obviously, Minecraft is a Java application. You will need to download a Java Runtime Environment for Windows. Go to and download it. I downloaded Java 7 Update 67, but download whatever is newest. Install it, then download Minecraft.exe from and run it. This is the Minecraft launcher. It will download and play the latest stable version of Minecraft by default.
