problems installing blobDetection Library in Processing to make an Auto Turret? Answered

I'm trying to install blobDetection in processing to make an Auto Turret. 
I downloaded the Library from this link and followed the provided instructions, but I wasn't able to get it to work. I got an error saying Access was denied. Can someone help me get the library to work? I'm using windows 7. Thanks!

Do you have permission to access \Anuj\, what are the permissions set as on the .jar?

That's SYSTEM, but if you've got that I'd imagine it's the same for \Anuj\.
?
What does it say for the .jar?

I found my problem, Either chrome, or the link, was giving me a .tgz compressed file, but i couldn't see it because of Windows 7 settings. when i used winRAR on that, it would make a folder which had a .jar ending. Processing would recognize it, and display it in the menu, but it wans't able to open it. I had to compress the Folder contents, and rename the .zip with a .jar extension. Thanks! Chow


Well I'm glad you fixed it. tgz eh? that's a combination of tape-archive and gnuzip isn't it?

gz is definitely Gnuzip but UNIX-systems have this old archiver that was originally built for tape-drives (like you see in those old films, 12" reels etc.) I've seen them as .tar (tape archive) - you have to archive it, then compress it. Archiving and compressing at the same time is a logical progression.

Nope, got it to work with a laser. very nice... although, I have some ideas for the next version.
