I did not find this part of the installation particularly userfriendly either.
Try this fop.bat instead: sets CLASSPATH environment variable correctly & can be run anywhere. (change the directory to your fop install first): Failing this: use -d option for debug mode try docs\examples\runtests.bat Regards, Roland -----Original Message----- From: Gilson Nascimento D Elrei [mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] Sent: Wednesday, 15 May 2002 11:47 PM To: '[EMAIL PROTECTED]' Subject: Newbie: Error trying to convert (standalone) the simple.fo example after first installation...
