JUnit8.3.1 Install test fails??!!

JUnit8.3.1 Install test fails??!!

JUnit8.3.1 Install test fails??!!

The installation test failes with the following:


D:\Program Files>java junit.textui.TestRunner junit.samples.AllTests
Class not found "junit.samples.AllTests"

This class currently is located at


D:\Program Files\junit3.8.1\junit\samples

I down loaded the current version JUnit3.8.1 zip file and extracted it to D:\Program Files using folder names. This created a subdirectory \junit3.8.1

I created a system variable JUNIT_HOME and set it to


D:\Program Files\junit3.8.1

I then set classpath to:


C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC\lib\Msbase.jar;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC\lib\Msutil.jar;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Driver for JDBC\lib\Mssqlserver.jar;%JUNIT_HOME%\JUNIT.JAR

These are the instructions in the FAQ on the SourceForge site.

Everything looks good to me.  What do I need to do to fix this?

Thanks for your help

RE: JUnit8.3.1 Install test fails??!!

Is it correct that you've got a D:\Program Files and a C:\Program Files?

Also, how are you setting the classpath? Since there are spaces in the path, you'll need to put it all in quotes for it to work.

RE: JUnit8.3.1 Install test fails??!!

Yes, I have both a C:\Program Files and a D:\Program Files.
The C drive is used only for Windows 2003 and MS Office 2003.  All other programs (java, junit, eclipse, etc.) are on the D: drive to keep them out of the way of Windows recovery/upgrade activities.

I set the environment variables in:
  Control panel>System>Advanced>Envirnment>system variables
Usually don't need quotes there...the SQL/2000 stuff works ok.
