how do you run an application properly when using your H drive?

I know it's kinda like this:

H:\directoryname\filename>java Example_1_1

like for example if i was to call my directory Java and my file name Example_1_1 would it look something like this:

H:\Java\Example_1_1>java Example_1_1

oh and do i need to change directory at the start in order to work from my H drive?

That looks like a good start. You need to make your "current directory" the parent of a set of directories that match your package statements. If you didn't specify a package then your current directory contains the source files. I think that's what you're up to.

See if this tutorial makes this clearer.

Right... :roll:

"Fishy Cakes", have you read the JavaRanch policy on forum names? Please change your name.

All JavaRanch users are asked to use a real name as their display name, with a first and last name, and maybe more, separated by spaces. Obviously fictitious names may be locked out. By "real name", we mean either your own actual, personal name, or a name that at least looks like it could belong to a real person. No names of celebrities or fictional characters. No cute nicknames like "javarulz" or "Hacker King". No joke names like "Adam Baum" (atom bomb) or "Justin Case" (just in case). No names with embedded numbers or other unorthodox punctuation like "Mike505" or "John_Smith". No names of companies - just people.
