Hello all!!

I am trying to run a program which i downloaded from the internet.
When i try to execute it o get on my windows xp a window called "java virtual machine launcher", with the message: Could not find main class. Program will exit.

The strange thing is that in some other computers i can run this application with no problem. I already downloaded the JVM and install it again, but it didnt work.

Do you guys have any idea of what could solve this problem ?

Regards !

Sorry, I wanted some information on the program itself, like the name, where did you download it from, etc.

try this
create path and classpath to your jvm under

control panel->system->advanced tab->environment variables->user variables
click on New. add variable name as "path" and varable value as ".;C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_04\bin;"

click on New once again and add variable name as "classpath" and varable value as ".;C:\Program Files\Java\j2re1.4.2_04\lib;"
