I downloaded the 1.5.2 version of the orionserver and tried to install it as per the instructions in the Cattle Drive and I get this message (paraphrased somewhat):
Can't load Main-Class attribute something or other from orion.jar
Any thoughts?

Carol I installed the same version at work and got the same error Pres Brawner was getting (see this).
I simply created persistence under my orion directory.
If that does not solve your problem. pse post the complete error mesg if you can.
Good luck

Johannes, this is the exact message I'm getting when I type this command in:
C:\orion>java -jar orion.jar
Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from orion.jar
That's it. I followed the directions in the Cattle Drive, but I downloaded a more recent version of the server. Perhaps it has different requirements? Someone else mentioned a file named rt.jar that I might need to copy. Any clues?

Carol I've got version 1.5.2 and no problems. Cant say I've seen your err mesg before. I'll have to nose around on the net for you and see if I can find something.
You had a look at the above thread in my posting above I assume & created the persistance dir?. Just asking
Congrats on passing OOP-4 by the way

I'm using version 1.5.2

Did you copy tools.jar from your JDK into c:\orion after you unzipped the orion1.5.2.zip file into C:\ (which created c:\orion for you in the process) ??

You do not need to copy rt.jar.

I figured out what was wrong after I deleted the orion file and unzipped it again. I created a folder named orion and unzipped the downloaded orion file into that folder. So I needed to unzip the orionserver file directly onto C. It's working now!
