I get this error when I try to start Redbox on Vista :

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Files
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: Files
at Method)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClassInternal(
Could not find the main class: Files. Program will exit.
Druk op een toets om door te gaan. . .

It's a java error but i have no idea how to resolve it.
Any suggestions ?

It looks like you have moved or deleted some of the application files. Out of the box you shouldn't have any problems running the RedBox on Vista.

Try re-installing SFS in a brand new folder and see if it works

This problem exists when jre is installed in C:\Program Files (x86).
To fix the problem first uninstall Java and install it again in C:\Java\jre6.
After this go to Cotrol Panel --> System --> Advanced system settings --> Environment variables. In the System variables list look for all C:\Program Files (x86)\Java values and change them to C:\Java.
I had exactly the same problem and this solution works for me.

there was no need to uninstall, just added the path to windows
