Default Installing Saxon XSLT Processor

I've been trying to install the Saxon processor
according to the instructions given in chapter 8
(XSLT), starting from page 293.
Java version 1.4.2.
I have downloaded the zip file for version 7.8 and extracted
the files in c:\saxon7_8.
I have created a CLASSPATH variable (I have windows xp)
in the system variables pointing to the folder-
However when I navigate to the directory where I intend to install
my XML and XSLT files and write the following:
(as written in the book) java -jar saxon7.jar I am given the following error:"unable to access jarfile saxon7.jar".
The default Saxon error message (the message which I should have been given in the first place) is only given to me
if I navigate to the saxon folder.
Are there any more adjustments to be made ?

I ran into the same problem. If you copy the .jar file into the same directory as your xml files, things work. Not an answer to your question, but that all I got.

Though this is an old posting, if you got here, like I did, while researching this problem, then you should see this link.


Good Luck!
