Subject RE: NoClassDefFound trying to run ant [Solved]
Date Tue, 28 Jan 2003 14:21:00 GMT
Well, I was so desperate to get it working that I went back to the install docs that I haven't
read since I installed ant the first ever time. And right there it told me that I need to
have a REALLY short directory name for ant on Windows 95/98 and I assumed ME. Once I installed
ant in c:\ant, everything just worked. I wish it wasn't like that, but I can live with it.

Thanks to everyone for all of the suggestions. Now I can go back to lurking on the list and
just being a happy ant user. :-)

Simon
