Pinned topic Server launched but failed initialization.

‏2009-07-22T13:56:57Z |
I'm using RAD7 and have an application that I recently took over that is using Websphere 6.1. I was able to import the application and had it running on Websphere 6.1 without any problems. I had made some additional changes to the database driver within the admin console, stopped and restarted the server and then starting receiving the following error upon startup:

Server launched. Waiting for initialization status.
ADMU3011E: Server launched but failed initialization. startServer.log,
SystemOut.log(or job log in zOS) and other log files under
C:\IBM\SDP70\runtimes\base_v61\profiles\AppSrv01\logs\server1 should
contain failure information.

There is nothing in the SystemErr.log and SystemOut.log files. The native_stderr.log file shows the following error:

"The java class is not found: com.ibm.wsspi.bootstrap.WSPreLauncher"

I have Googled this error and haven't found anything that has helped me with this problem. I decided to delete the server and create it new but when I try and start the new 6.1 server I get the same error. Based on this, I don't think that what I originally changed within the admin console has anything to do with my problem. I'm stuck at this point and have no idea how to proceed.

Any help that anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.
