Subject RE: Strange problem: "Could not find file" - but it's for sure there
Date Wed, 28 Jan 2009 08:44:43 GMT

Hello,

Thank you for your quick reply! Yes, I am sure about the names of the files and where they
are placed. 

Which version of Ant did you use?

Could it be some kind of collision? I have ant 1.6 installed in some kind of sun-directory
since before. I also have clipse installed and Ant comes whith it and is also installed somewhere
else. When I try the to run Ant from Eclipse I get the same error message. As you can see
in my first mail I am using Ant 1.7.1 so I am sure about that I am using the latest version.
I did configure both my PATH and ANT_HOME to point to my version 1.7.1. 

I also took the information I sent to the mailing list as input for setting up exactly the
same configuration on another computer in office, I worked seemless. I tried both 1.7.0 and
1.7.1 so I assume it is not a bug but has to do with my setup. Any suggestions for how to
move forward?

Thanks again!

Regards,
Niklas
