Problems installing under Windows NT?
A few people have been having problems getting NetRexx to run with some
versions of the Java Virtual Machine under Windows NT. The symptoms
appear to be that the CLASSPATH setting is being ignored, and either the
NetRexxC class cannot be found or the
sun/tools/javac/Main class cannot be found.
The simplest solution to this seems to be to copy the NetRexxC.jar file
and the tools.jar file (e.g., from \jdk1.3\lib) to the
extensions directory (e.g., \jdk1.3\jre\lib\ext). Note
that the extensions directory may need to be created, and should be
under ...\jre\lib, not ...\lib.
Note that on some NT systems, with some Java installations, the
extensions directory may be called ...\jre\1.3.0_01\lib\ext or
similar. If you have a directory named like this, try putting the
NetRexxC.jar and tools.jar files there.
If these suggestions don't work for you, please send me e-mail at the

etc. Also, if you can identify the cause of the problem, please
let me know.
