    If so, your web browser has downloaded it as the wrong file type. You need to turn the 'hide extensions for known file types' setting off, if you're not sure how to do that just google it. And then you need to rename the file from 'RuneMate.rar' or 'RuneMate.zip' (Whichever it may be) to 'RuneMate.jar'

    If you have any problems let me know

    Winrar is also known to open .jar files as archives (cause it technically is one). All you gotta do is fix up the file associations in that case.

    True, however the most common cause (the only one i've actually seen) for this issue is a browser downloading the client as a .zip or .rar

    You'll need to be more specific than that

    What browser does this? Sounds pretty odd for a browser to do that -__-

    I'm having a problem trying to open up this jar file with chrome and ie. it's wanting me to open it up with another program and when i picked java like one person on this site has stated, there is a small black command prompt type looking screen that goes away quickly and nothing happens after that. I also tried downloading bitzipper and i can't seem to get runemate to open up with that program either. any help is much appreciated

    Are you running 32-bit java on a 64-bit OS? If so you need 64-bit java.
