Which means that your classpath is somehow misconfigured.

If you downloaded and installed the package successfully, then there should be a file matching
xep*.jar in your classpath. It is customary for Java applications to delivery all .class files
packaged in a few 'jars', Java ARchives.

This does no harm to your particular installation; it is for some older versions of Java which
do have this file and require it to be included into the class path.
