Can someone help me get past this? I am trying to run Hello World on a Windows XP machine and can not get it to run. It will compile, but not run. Here is the code:



Here is the Windows CLASSPATH

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_17\bin

Here is the Windows Path

C:\oracle\ora81\bin;C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Alky for Applications\Libraries\;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared\;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\10.0\DLLShared\;c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\binn\;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files\VisualSVN\bin;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_17\bin

Here are screen shots of the errors that I get. I have gone to java.com and ran the test to see if Java is working and it is.

Help, almost ready to go back to .Net!

In your screen shot, you first delete the class files, then you run the JVM, and is now surprised that the JVM can't find the class files?

Yes, I can get the program to compile, just not run.

How can any program run after you delete the compiled binary?

Grabbed the wrong screen shot when I put the above images together. I have updated the screen shot showing the class and the error.

And BTW, get rid of the CLASSPATH. This isn't right.

Deleting the ClassPath solved the problem!

THANKS!
