I have a java program in .exe format that is throwing an exception when i try to do something specific in it.

Im trying to debug it with eclipse, but i keep getting confusing answers. So far the closest responses ive got was that i need to have the source code (which i also have) and then build a package with it.

Ive imported the source code into a project and also created a package with the new package wizard. What do i need to do next to run the program in debugging mode?

I tried right clicking the package and selecting "debug as java application" but it complains that i do not have a class with a main type in it, how do i give it what it wants?

Picture of what it looks like now (see attached)

Im not sure where to give it the class file it wants, the source code only has .java files, not .class files...

Hi ,
Before checking why your application is not running , you can check the compilation errors your project is showing.
For that you can check the "problems" tab , and try to fix those . So , for error-free code it will be easy to find exact cause .
