embedded java version 1.8.0_25 needs update
Java that is included with twitch app is version 1.8.025 and you have to manually set update to latest current 64bit version 1.8.0211 in minecraft java settings. Most modpacks require 64 bit java and the twitch app doesn't default to the newer version of java installed and this creates issues for forge minecraft modpacks that require more than 4 gig or ram. Also the embeded version of java 1.8.0_25 is old and there have been some issues with some mods crashing/compatibility. Maybe if the app would search or have a better way selecting current installed java runtime options.

Thank you again for your submission,
is this declined due licensing or continuing support for older versions of windows? I think a choice box upon install would be nice, e.g. use legacy or use latest java 64bit version.
thanks for feedback and reviewing. also the older version of java runtime has caused issues with immersive engineering manual, i usully install the manual java installer with 64bit java currently 8_211.
