Hi I'm getting the following error when trying to start a game. Also attached a log if that helps. I get something similar when I try to install mods too.

Unfortunately this hasn't worked. Does anyone else have any idea what I can do?

Managed to resolve this by going into environment variables and manually adding the -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true into the system variables.

For any one else needing to do this you need to go into environment variables and in the System variables enter the name _JAVA_Options and the value as -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true

Thanks to PhilipFry & Giebmasse for their help.
