Ok well i have tried manually creating jars and manifest files, none of which seemed to work. I recently discovered that you can create a jar through JCreater-Tools. I created the jar file and unzipped it to get the META-INF folder containing MANIFEST.MF. I modified the manifest file so that it looks like this:
Created-By: 1.4.2_04 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)
With payroll being the main class of the simple payroll program i created. It simply prompts the user for data and then returns data. It uses an inputFileReader to copy data to about 10 different text documents.
Anyways, whenever I attempt to execute the jar file I get this damn error message:
Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from
C:\Documents and Settings \Josh\My Documents\payroll\myJar.jar
