Hello!

Is there any compatibily problem with Windows 8? It seems i cannot launch my SWT 4.2.1 application on Windows 8. I wonder if the problem is related to SWT or JNLP.

The trace :

java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display
at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(Unknown Source)
at java.net.URLClassLoader$1.run(Unknown Source)

The same application works with Windows 7.

We haven't tried running on the Windows 8 release yet (just some
previous beta releases) so I can't say for sure, but a
ClassNotFoundException doesn't seem like a problem that would be
introduced by moving up to a newer OS. We will be trying on Windows 8
soon, and if a problem like this has been introduced then it will be
addressed.

Based on your mention of JNLP I assume your case is deployment via JWS.
Perhaps there's something security-related or setup-related getting in
the way?
