    Default Unable to connect to Sql Server

    HI All,

    I have set the classpath to C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\lib\sqljdbc.jar;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7\lib\sqljdbc4.jar;

    however I am still getting:

    java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver
    at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(Unknown Source)

    Default Re: Unable to connect to Sql Server

    java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver
    The program can not find a definition for the class: com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver
    Find the jar file that contains that class's definition and put it on the classpath when the program is executed.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
