php - Class validator not found in respect validation Lib


I'm new in composer but I could getvendor,composer.lock andcomposer.json from cmd then I paste them to my project without Validation_Master folder. My project Path:C:\wamp64\www\php Projects\project 1\(here there are test.php and vendor, composer.lock and composer.json) Validation_Master folder path:C:\wamp64\www\php Projects\Validation_Master My Code is:

    require "vendor/autoload.php";
    use Respect\Validation\Validator as v;
    $number = 123;

But the above code gives me the following error :

Fatal error: Class 'Respect\Validation\Validator' not found in C:\wamp64\www\php Projects\project 1\test.php

What did I do?!!?
copy Validation_Master folder to the path of test.php ==> (Failed )
copy Vendor folder to the path of Validation_Master folder and required from there ==> (Failed )
Manipulate namespace a lot and add namespace Respect\Validation to the code ==> (Failed )
What's The PROBLEM ???? How Can I use Respect Validation Library ????? Please answer me basically (I read docs before but didn't help)

theautoload.php code :

require_once  __DIR__ . '/composer' . '/autoload_real.php';

return ComposerAutoloaderInit46e0d859a60be6f2acf30ed92a2228ad::getLoader();

I appreciate and sorry that I've written a lot

UPDATE : My problem like this post : Why my autoload.php of composer doesn't work?, but it didn't help
I also runcomposer dump-autoload in cmd ==> (failed)




It looks to me like you copied the composer.json of therespect/validation library, and tried to use it as the composer.json for your project. This is a completely wrong approach.

Use this as your project composer.json:

  "require": {
    "respect/validation": "^1.0"


  • runcomposer install,
  • run your script again.
