Main Class in Run Configuration - Edit Configuration

Hello,
I have been working with two java files all day, then towards the end of the day I must of inadvertantly made some change that at one time I was getting this error: NoClassDefFoundError
I checked my CLASSPATH environment setting and it is correct.  At least I have the path up to src.  And it was working this morning and early afternoon.  And the package statements are correct.
Then, like a fool I deleted my existing RUN Configuration settings.  Now when I try to set the "Main Class" in the RUN Configuration - Edit Configuration window, it is not finding the java file with main, via Search.
What might be the cause of this problems?

It appears that when you set your Main class the Java Virtual Machine or a ClassLoader can't find the definition of a class, in other words can't find .class file. Try to compile your files again and make sure that are in the correct place.

javaexperto, I got out of this mess, but don't exactly know how.  I reverted back to some older CVS files, but that did not help.  The problem was with my local Eclipse setup.  I imported an old image I had, but that did not work.  Then I notices that my Package Explorer was displaying the wrong package path.
I don't recall what I did next, but I am back an running.
A quick question for you; Can you see my "profile?"  The reason why I ask, is that your name is javaexperto.  I take it that you are Spanish...maybe?  Chima is short for Chimayo, my home town.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Que Bueno! But my Spanish is slow at typing.
My problem is back: Main class not found.  What is happening is that I have one file that is working and the other is not.  They are both in the same project and package.  My Edit Configuration settings are correct, but do not seem to work.
There is a developer here, his name is Oguer G. from Chihuahua, Mexico.  Where are you at?
Can you view my profile?

Could you tell me wich IDE are you using? I think it is not an error from the virtual machine, i think the problem is in your enviroment. I'm from Cuernavaca Morelos and I can view your profile.

experto! I am using Eclipse Ganymede version 3.4.0.  I have one that is working and the other does not.
My last name is Martinez.  I do speak Spanish, but my writing of Spanish is slow.

The problem is no longer popping up.  Do not ask me what I did, but it is gone.
I will wait for your response before I close this issue.
thanks

Yes, it got solved by itself.  I do not know what I did to make it work.
Now I am trying to make the files work with JUnit.  Another HEADACHE!
