    XML/XSL parse errors" occurs in v18-up for any attempt to print

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    When you try to do *any* print in the GUI in version 18 or 19 you get an "XML/XSL parse errors" message, followed by three Notepad screens, the third of which ("Xml/Xsl.err") has the following message:

    java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: java/lang/CharSequence
    Exception in thread "main"

    (Note: If the error message you see is different than the above, please check for it in the Knowledge Base. This problem pertains to this specific message only.)

    Beginning with version 18 you need to have the Java 2 Runtime Environment. The above message can occur when it is missing.

    To see if you have it, do:

    Start --> Control panel --> Add or remove programs

    You should see "Java 2 Runtime Environment" under "J" in this list. If you don't see it, that means that you don't have it.

    With version 18-up, you must have it. It can be obtained from (downloads).
