I really didn't know where to post this so here it is. I want to run a program that I wrote strictly from a floppy disk. It access the MySQL JDBC driver. When I have it setup on my hardrive with the .jar file in my classpath the program works just fine. Now I try to run the same program from the floppy with javaw.exe -classpath a:\mm-mysql-2.0.4-bin.jar;a:\ package.Main
and the program opens just fine however when an attempt to run some of the queries I get the error "no suitable driver found" it can't find the mysql driver but it's there. So I guess my question is does the javaw.exe accept the -classpath switch and if so why is mine not working?
thanks in advance to anyone who can help me.

Yes the javaw can take a classpath parameter.
You say that the driver is on the floppy - yes?
Try resetting your path statement just before you invoke the program to include the a drive, so that the OS can find the MySQL stuff there.
