I have a bunch of .java files and i can't seem to get Jcreator or Eclipse running properly (I'll ask about the Eclipse separately in a differen question so it doesn't get confusing).

Using Jcreator, why can't i compile?
Every time i try to compile my java project, i get:
Error occurred during initialization of VM
: Can't find dependent libraries

Process completed.

Thanks for letting everyone know you're cross posting.

cross-post

If the project needs to be done tonight, use notepad to write your code and compile from the windows command line. Stop wasting your time posting the same question.

The JCreator and Eclipse can be figured out after your project is done.

When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

On doing some research, it seems that this error happens when importing nonstandard libraries. It happens sometimes when people switch IDEs. Some IDEs come with nonstandard libraries and put the import statement in the file for you.

What are your import statements in the files that won't compile?

I am not cross posting . I was able to get it compile and run in Eclipse until i closed the application. Jcreator never worked. I am abandoning Jcreator. I just have one question to work on the assignment before i send it off. I just hate notepad.

Also, the reason why i think i needed to get Eclipse running was because i needed to refer to a start page when i submit my assignment to the teacher and I thought the start page would be the workspace file to load all the classes. I may be wrong about that. The teacher had not properly explained what start page he wants.


My other assignment is with Eclipse again and so that's why i want to know.

I don't see how i am cross posting. Eclipse and Jcreator are two separate applications. I posted questions separately because i had different problems with each that i am not sure which one i should use. But now i am decided Eclipse is best since I need that for another course.

The link says cross posting is if i asked the same questions twice. I DID NOT. They are two separate Questions with two DIFFERENT problems. I hate working with Notepad. Yes, i have no choice. But do i want to find out a solution so i don't have to work with Notepad forever??? Of course.

The link also says if i posted on a different forum and didn't like their answer. I DID NOT.

I never expected to be accused of something i don't know why i am being accused of.

Why fight with notepad and it idiosyncrasies? Get Notepad++, it's free. Or if you feel like spending a little bit of money try UltraEdit.

Am i mistaken to believe this was suppose to be friendly place???

I just wanted to feel comfortable programming.

I am so because i didn't do anything wrong.

Peter, i just have poor eyesight. Sometimes, the characters are hard to tell if i have CAPS on or not on Notepad.

Anyhow, i appreciate all the friendly responses i received before accusation.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
