    Default Compiled .jar won't work (Error-sound)

    I'm going to compile a project. I do like in this example below marked in red and the cmd says it compresses to a jar. The .jar ends up in the same folder as the mainclass and when I press the .jar file I just hear that "windows error-sound" and the .jar does not open.

    jar cvf TicTacToe.jar TicTacToe.class audio images

    The example marked in red is from here Creating a JAR File (The Java™ Tutorials > Deployment > Packaging Programs in JAR Files) and I've read all that.

    Read a bit further into those tutorials
    Running JAR-Packaged Software (The Java™ Tutorials > Deployment > Packaging Programs in JAR Files)
    Sounds like you need to set the entry point of the application with a manifest file.
