I have been trying for a week or so (own time as this isn't sanctioned at work) to install the Java SDK and get Pro/E's examples to run. I can't call the help line as my company doesn't pay maintenance so I am seeking your help.
I have installed the J2 SDK 1.2_11, set all the PATH variables and CLASSPATH variables and the PRO_JAVA_COMMAND variable (I wish Windows had larger text entry boxes for these things), an the other class and jar references according to the Install Test instructions and J-Link documentation instructions. The only thing I can't correlate is the CLASSES.ZIP file which is supposed to be in the <jdk loadpoint=">\lib. I find the SUN documentation about why it isn't there confusing, and Pro/E doc specifically cites its use. I did find a copy of the CLASSES.ZIP file and put it in the directory, but that didn't fix everything. It reduced compilation errors from 3 to 1 (all with the asynchronous mode that PTC said wouldn't compile anyway).
When I start Pro/E in the Intall_Test directory, it recognizes the code, but says that it failed to start. And, even though it is registered through the protk.dat, I can't start the app manually once ProE is going.
