Problem getting ProM to run from source

edited July 2011 in - Development
Hi all,

First of all, I'm afraid that some of the links mentioned in this thread: are out-of-date. For instance, I believe the site document refers to the old repository and it says to checkout the "Plugins/trunk" folder.

My problem is that after following this tutorial: and trying to run ProM, I get this confusing message saying:
Archive for required library: 'lib/Licenses.txt' in project 'ProM' cannot be read or is not a valid ZIP file    ProM        Build path    Build Path Problem

What's more, when I try to run ProM with UITopia I get the following:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/processmining/contexts/uitopia/UI
Caused by: java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.processmining.contexts.uitopia.UI
    at$ Source)
    at Method)
    at Source)
    at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source)
    at sun.misc.Launcher$AppClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source)
    at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(Unknown Source),

though I want to believe that this error is a result of the previous one.

Anyway, it's good to be on board :)

Have a nice day,


  • Solved. Simple deleting "Licenses.txt" from Properties>Libraries helped. Hope that's of any help for the future generations.

  • Hi Andrzej,
