I am experiencing problem in running a Java
program from the dos prompt.I am an experienced Java developer so there is no problem of classpath,environment .and so on.This problem however has arisen only after i recently installed an MSDN Library (October 1999).Before the installation it asked me whether the VB Runtime files are to be updated.I should have realized that it was an old software and given no , but unfortunately I pressed yes.
Now I am unable to run Java programs(earlier I could do so)and i am getting the following error :
Exception in thread
"main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: "classname"
This is the standard response i am getting for all programs.The programs are getting compiled though.
.The same program can be run however successfully from an IDE
I also discovered that certain help files were also not opening .These help files are however not pertaining to Java,but some other software.Now I have downloaded VB Runtime 6.0 files
and updated my system (WinNt4.0 sp4.0),still tried ,but to no effect.I suspect corruption in some files but I dont have a clue how to rectify this problem.If anybody can help me out please or suggest another alternative forum where this problem can be addressed,I shall be most grateful.
