Hi Macke,

Thankyou very much for the help but it hasn't solved my problem. I have 
a feeling that I am wrong somewhere in specifying the paths. I am 
sending you my complete files with the attachment so that you can have a 
clear Idea of what I am doing.

I have also tried with the following path in the ProcessPanel.Spec.xml:

<executeclass name="com.izforge.izpack.util.TestWrite">

Thankyou again for ur kind help.
