    Default Error: Could not find or load main class

    Error: Could not find or load main class

    What is this? Maybe some error with classpath or path?

    Can you post the full contents of the command prompt window that shows the command that was entered and the error message?

    The java command takes a classname for its arg, not a filename. Leave off the .class

    Did you copy the full contents of the command prompt window
    or type in manually what was posted in post#5?

    The error message is missing some text.

    Also posted at: Error: Could not find or load main class - Dev Shed

    Looks like OP didn't say that the class was in a package.
