I think i have narrowed it down to not have the classpath set to the right folder/s. I have Java and the JDk installed to C:\Java\bin and the folder with my .java and .class files in C:\Users\....\Desktop\JavaWork . now i managed to get it 1 of the .java files i made from reading the HF book into a .class file by moving the folder into the Java folder. but that shouldnt be right either from what i have read on here + on the Java Sun website. Also im on 64bit vista if that makes any difference. Thanks in advance for the help!
first you don't have to set the classpath for your source files. in a dos window go to the directory which has your .java files run javac file.java I am guessing you don't have your files in a package?? next run your execute the class file accordingly java -cp . filename

ah k that makes it work! /cheer 6 days of trying to fix this on my own and something as simple as that fixes it
Hmm they should think about adding that to the Head First Java book or put it in a read me with the downloadable files for the book. Couldnt find it on Java's site either. they just say you need to change the path but dont tell you how to change it
