While using Eclipse I"m running into an error when I try to create a java doc. Here is the process that I'm using:

1. Have my project class that I'm trying to create the Javadoc for open.
2. Along the top menu options click Project
3. On the drop down menu select Generate Javadoc
4. In the pop-up menu along configure I have selected "C:\Users\Paul.Paul\Desktop\TC3\Spring 2016\CIS225 - Java\Java Stuff\bin\java.exe
5. I have selected private under which javadoc members will have visibility
6. for destination i have selected "C:\Users\Paul.Paul\Desktop\TC3\Spring 2016\CIS225 - Java\Eclipse Workspace\Chapter 5\doc"
7. I then click finish.

In the console window the following message comes up: "Error: Could not find or load main class @C:\Users\PAUL~1.PAU\AppData\Local\Temp\javadoc-arguments4559908391840097812.tmp"

Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the Ranch!

Your problem is in step 4 - you are supposed to provide a path the javadoc application located in the JDK's bin directory. For example, on my Windows 7 workstation, I would specify:
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_45\bin\javadoc.exe
