Im trying to compile and run a program which is a .bat executeable which uses a locally compiled class. The problem is that when I try to run I get the above mentioned NoClassDefFoundError, and it tells me it cant find the class...even though its in the same folder.

ARGH. Ive had this problem before, but I dont know how to fix it. Any ideas?

Please post the full error message. Without it, I can only guess what the problem my be. My first guess is that the CLASSPATH variable does not include the location of the class you are trying to execute. You should run "echo %CLASSPATH%" from the command line and paste the output here.
