[xep-support] Getting XEP to run

So far, I haven't been able to get XEP to run; I've tried the Sun JDK 1.2.2 on WinNT4 here at work (a PIII 866mhz with 512MB RAM, and a PIII 500mhz with 384MB RAM), and JDK 1.4.0 on WinXP Pro at my house (Athlon Thunderbird 1.33ghz with 512MB RAM).  This is the error I get on the PIII866 (the other computers are the same except for the path):

Exception in thread "main" com.renderx.FO2PDF.L.FO2PDFInternalError: cannot pars
e D:\XEP\etc/fonts.xml:java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.apache.xerces.parse
        at com.renderx.FO2PDF.I.Font.init(Font.java:201)
        at com.renderx.FO2PDF.Driver.init(Driver.java:50)
        at com.renderx.FO2PDF.Driver.main(Driver.java, Compiled Code)


This is the batch file constructed by the install program:

@echo off
rem   This batch file encapsulates a standard XEP call.

set JAVA_HOME=D:\jdk1.2.2\jre

set CP=

I checked, and there is a D:\XEP\lib\xerces-1.0.0.jar on my computer.  When I add it to my classpath for JBuilder, I have no problem including org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser in a program, so I can't see a reason why XEP wouldn't be able to find the class.
