Help needed to run a jar.
Posted on 2006-11-21
I have downloaded a .jar that contains a manifest and many .class files only. Attempting to run the jar, the error noted by javaw was that manifest does not have a valid construction, it actually lists no class file that contains the word "main".
By doing a text search within the jar for the word "main", I located a certain class file that has it. What suggestions are there to make this program run?
I have win2k and jdk1.5.0_05
I have opened and read the manifest as this:
Archiver-Version: Plexus Archiver
Created-By: Apache Maven
Specification-Title: Stand-alone and Embeddable PostScript Viewer
Upon attempting to run the jar :
The notice of failure reads:
Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from
