I'm not able to see your figure. Please copy and paste the error message you're receiving exactly as it appears.

Run the JAR file from the command line using java -jar, that way you'll get to see the actual exception / error.

Is the program in the .jar something you coded or someone elses's code?

Where is the Main-Class entry? Without that, a JAR file is not an executable JAR file.
