    Default What is this JCreator build error, and how do I fix it?

    Hi my name is Ian. I have downloaded the freeware JCreator LE and am running it on my Dell / Windows Vista laptop. I have also downloaded the necessary JPB package.

    At first the program would build and run correctly, but now has errors when building. I moved the default save folder, and that seems to be when the problem began.

    When I observe the save folder from JCreator's open / save dialogue box, all of the files are there. However, when I observe the same folder (same location, same user) from the c-prompt the new saved files are missing! Whatever is happening here seems to be why there is an error whenever trying to build a file.

    I actually completely uninstalled both JCreator and the JPB package, and deleted all of the remnant file folders as well, and then re-installed both only to find that it is still not working like it first did! Someone suggested to me that I may need to enable hidden files to find any possible hidden JCreator files and then delete them...

    How do I fix this? I really need it to work, I need it for a JAVA class I'm taking in college.

    Keep in mind I am a total noob. Thanks for your time,

    Ian

    What are the errors you're getting? Do you get them when you compile from the command line?

    From the GUI, from the toolbar when I click "build," the error is:
    javac: file not found: C:\\filepath... <--- with whatever filepath from whatever java file

    And even still, when I save a new file in my target folder, I can browse that same folder from MyComputer and the file is not there!

    But it is there when I browse from the JCreator folder, even when I close/re-open JCreator, or even after restarting my computer, and I can actually open the "invisible" file (with whatever changes saved) from JCreator... but the above error will happen.

    Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling JCreator?

    Yes, I have uninstalled and reinstalled both JCreator LE and the JDK, and deleted the remaining files before reinstalling as well.

    I have read vague comments elsewhere on the internet that suggest the importance of always using the workspace within JCreator LE, but not sure why.

    Anyway, more recently I have found that if I start working on a java file in Notepad, save it, and then open it from JCreator LE in that location it works fine! Very bizarre, but I guess the problem is resolved as long as I do it this way from now on.

    Otherwise, the default save folder in JCreator LE continues to be a mystery, saving files that are somehow invisible when browsing from outside of the program, and do not compile correctly for whatever reason involving this weirdness.

    When you create a new file in JCreator, where is the default location? Mine is My Documents. What happens if you change that?
