Mac: Executing the program does nothing

Problem: You’ve downloaded a particular version of Minecrafter, and executing the problem loads the icon on the dock, bounces a little, then dissapears. Minecrafter does not appear.

Solution: You’ve downloaded the wrong version. If you’ve downloaded the 32-bit version, get the 64-bit, and vice versa.
