I have a java program which is looking for a specific JAR file in the class path. For example, 'C:\myApp\myJar.jar'. The problem is that I have a program called Exceed installed. It has two entries that cause problems. They are "C:\Program Files\Exceed.nt\hcljrcsv.zip" and "C:\Program Files\Exceed.nt". For some reason, java still interprets the "." as a directory. The path "C:\Program Files\Exceed.nt" is being interpreted by java as "C:\Program Files\Exceed\nt". Any ideas how to work around this?
Why does Exceed.nt need to be in your classpath. If it doesn't hold any class files it shouldn't be in there. If it really holds class files, and it is a zip file, rename it .jar. Actually it SOUNDS more like a properites file - but then I have never seen Exceed so . . . .
