Hi all,

I have the jsdk-1.4.2_05-b04 and I am trying to install xerces-2.6.2. I have added xerces jar files to my windows 2000 path.

%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control Panel;C:\Program Files\Perforce;C:\j2sdk1.4.2_05\bin;%ANT_HOME%\bin;C:\j2sdk1.4.2_05\jre\lib\ext\clink150.jar;C:\xerces-2_6_2\resolver.jar;C:\xerces-2_6_2\xercesImpl.jar;C:\xerces-2_6_2\xml-apis.jar;C:\xerces-2_6_2\xmlParserAPIs.jar

i have seen a similar post made but it does not help me

I am trying to run some samples of "cyberlink for java" (UPnP software) and it requires xerces to be installed.

i get the following error when i run an example of upnp software:

C:\upnp\upnp-sample-aircon>java AirconFrame
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/xerces/par
at org.cybergarage.upnp.UPnP.<clinit>(
at org.cybergarage.upnp.Device.<clinit>(
at AirconFrame.<init>(
at AirconFrame.main(

have I installed xerces correctly?

The .jar files should be in your CLASSPATH environment variable, not the PATH environment variable.
