The file is Java.iras.071204.jar available at: Noaa The installation instructions are at: java -jar java.iras.071204 [xvf]Installation instructions I'm trying to install it use the run command line: java -jar c:\java.iras.071204.jar [xvf] But keep getting the same error message. In the instuction it says to use the -classpath command. But I don't know the path I need to set or how to include it in the commmand line.

Right, OK. So it's not an executable jar, and the "java -jar" option won't work.
Here's what you do from your command prompt:
- cd \ - mkdir IRAS. - cd C:\IRAS. - Use "DIR" to confirm that it's an empty directory. - Download or copy the file Java.IRAS.071204.jar into C:\IRAS. - Use "DIR" to confirm that the file is now in C:\IRAS - jar xvf Java.IRAS.071204.jar - Use DIR to confirm that there are now a couple dozen files in C:\IRAS, including "Iras.class" - Start the program using "java -classpath . Iras" Be sure to type the space, period, space after -classpath, and don't type the quotes!
If you have any trouble, you can come back and post your problem in this thread, and I'll help you figure it out.
