I recently downladed a bunch of mobile phone games and all came with the .jar extension. I tryed to "run" them under Windows XP but i get an error when Java tries to execute the .jar files.
I get "Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from..."
My Java version is 1.5 (build 1.5.0_09-b03)
Is there a way i can run those games from my pc?.

Any help would be appreciated.

There is a emulator program you can try. Read about it here.


I have not tried this yet so Caveat Emptor.
