jar file not working in Windows 7


The scenario is as follows:
I used to run a little jar file coded by me in XP, but now that I am using Windows 7 it doesn't work any more.
My java version is Version 6 Update 18

I get the following message:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError:
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException:
at$ Source)
Could not find the main class: C:\SMFilesGenerator.jar. Program will exit

I would appreciate it so much if you could help me.

By default, applications dont have rights to access the root of c:\. Try moving the jar file to your documents folder and run it from there.

Thanks for your reply
I tried moving it to 'My Documents' folder, but it is still not working. Today I installed the jdk-6u18-windows-i586, to see what happens, but there has been no change.
