Problem w/ program

Im having a problem with my SlotMachine program. I have 2 seperate classes saved, a class "Wheel" and a class "SlotMachine". Look at the SlotMachine code:

this is just the beginning of the code, but i get an error that says that it can't resolve symbol for class Wheel, but I compiled the wheel program just fine and this should work. This program works at my school but not at home.

(Edited by JAM to add the [CODE] and [/CODE] tags)

This forum is for talking about performance problems -- i.e., slow programs. I suppose "not even starting" is an extreme form of "slow", but still, this is off-topic here. I'm moving it to Java in General(Beginner) for discussion.

Include the wheel class in your slotmachine class.

Can you describe your directory layout? It will help if we know where your source files and class files are located. Perhaps we can help you resolve the problem with this information.

The directory is C:\JavaP\Programming\SlotMachine\
that is for the Wheel program
The directory for the SlotMachine program is C:\JavaP\Programming\SlotMachine\

this program works fine in my school but not at my home

Sounds like your CLASSPATH is not set up correctly. Follow the link to get instructions on how to set up the CLASSPATH; it sounds like you need to include "C:\JavaP\Programming\SlotMachine" in your classpath.

Also, Please use [CODE] and [/CODE] tags around your code blocks -- it makes them easier to read.
