I have made a Java project using JDBC and Swing and used MS Access as database. I have used JDBC-ODBC Bridge Driver to connect with database. Now when i run on another PC,
1) i make the required DSNs to make the project run.
2) i also have some files that store comboboxes and some store vector arrays. I copy those files on the PC.
3) Also i read some excel files using FileInputStream(using ApachePOI). I also copy these excel files on the PC.
The actual problem is with the last two. When i run the program, the part that only uses the DSNs runs perfectly but the part of the program that also tries to read the files does not run.
I have made a JAR file of the program whose main class is my program's first page.
Any idea what i can do to make the whole project run on another PC.
