Rainer, Having a non-standard directory structure is not a problem. What happens if you do this: LoadClass["java.lang.Object"] If it fails, do you get error messages other than LoadClass::fail? Do you see any output in the Java stdout window? If you do, then that will be the crucial piece of evidence to determine the problem. If this succeeds, then J/Link is working. If you cannot load some specific classes on one machine, it is most likely a CLASSPATH problem. You might want to reinstall J/Link. You will have problems if you have components from different versions of J/Link mixed together. Sometimes people don't realize that they still have an old copy of JLinkNativeLibrary.dll or JLink.jar kicking around. Todd Gayley Wolfram Research
