​​Minecraft Error: Exit Code 0. How to Fix it in a few minutes?

Some players in Minecraft can get knocked out due to the Exit Code 0 error. We want to tell you that there is no need to panic because this problem can be easily fixed. Use our troubleshooting methods to get your game working again.

Method 1: Close all conflicting programs

Many updates over the past ten years have not eliminated compatibility problems in Minecraft. Conflicting programs on your computer often cause the Exit Code 0 issue.

Before you start playing Minecraft Pixel World, you should ensure that no extraneous programs are running on the user’s PC. Identify and disable or delete unnecessary them and reduce all risks to a minimum.

Does the game crash? We recommend following the ensuing correction method.

Method 2: Update the graphics driver

Technically savvy gamers know that almost any problems in games are related to video cards, which may have an outdated driver. Let’s try to update the graphics processor:

  1. Go to the GPU manufacturer’s website (NVIDIA, AMD, or Intel),
  2. Find the GPU model you have on your PC.
  3. Download the latest driver installer that is compatible with your PC OS. Once downloaded, open the installer and follow the instructions.

We recommend following the ensuing correction method if the problem reappears after updating the graphics driver.

Method 3: Update Java

Are you using an edition of Java? Then you should check strictly which version of Java is being used. You should always have only the latest version of Java on your PC, and you should remember to keep your system up to date to avoid most problems.

The user can get Java either from Oracle or from other companies who build OpenJDK:

  1. First, go to the official Oracle website and download Java JRE 8 for the Windows version.
  2. Click the Install button and wait for the installation to complete.
  3. Now press Windows+R – a Run dialog box will appear, where you must enter the command ‘control.’
enter the command 'control'
  1. Inside the Control Panel, choose System and Security – System – Advanced System Settings – the System Properties menu appears.
choose System and Security
  1. Next, click Environment Variables – Path – Edit.

  1. Find the location of Java JRE 8 – enter the folder Java JRE 8 and click on the Bin button, then copy the folder’s location.
the folder's location
  1. Now go back to Edit Variable Properties – click New and paste the folder location.
Edit Variable Properties
  1. After setting the correct JRE, restart the PC.

We recommend following the ensuing correction method if the problem reappears after updating Java.

Fix 4: Uninstall each mod

Many users know that Minecraft promotes flexibility regarding mods, allowing players to get limitless possibilities. Playing with mods looks fun, but it can cause glitches.

If the user uses any mods, you should try disabling/removing each mod and see if the game changes. If the game stopped crashing, then an incompatible mod was used.

We recommend following the ensuing correction method if the problem reappears after disabling/removing mods.

Method 5: Clean Boot

Every PC has different characteristics and settings, so it can be challenging to determine the cause of the error. In that case, you should perform a clean boot to run the necessary programs and services on the PC:

  1. Press Win+R simultaneously – The Run window will appear – enter the command msconfig – OK.
  1. A pop-up window will appear where you need to go to the Services tab and check the box next to Hide all Microsoft services.
Run window
  1. Now you need to uncheck all services except manufacturers (Realtek, AMD, NVIDIA, Logitech, or Intel) – press OK.
  2. Next, press Ctrl+Shift+Esc to open the task manager – go to the Startup tab.
  3. Select all programs that interfere in the order and click Disable.
Disable menu
  1. Restart your PC.

Now you can start Minecraft and check the performance of the game. If the game crashes again, repeat the above steps, disabling other conflicting programs and services.

We recommend following the ensuing correction method if the problem reappears after a clean boot.

Method 6: Reinstall Minecraft

The above fixes didn’t work for you, and the crash continues? Then all that’s left is a complete reinstallation of Minecraft. First, make a backup copy of the .minecraft folder (to access it, type %appdata% in the File Explorer address bar). Don’t forget to delete the options.txt file from the .minecraft folder.
