javac is not recognized as an internal or external command... and vista
Hi everyone and thank you to anyone who tries to help me with this problem.
I know that the above is a common problem because I have read a lot of threads discussing it. I also know that the problem lies with the environment variables and the path of my JDK. I followed the instructions at Sun and I went to the environment variables, found the system one called path [which matched what I expected to see] and added my path to my JDK at the end.
My Path is: C:"\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin
Needless to say it didn't work. Since I knew the path was right I tried it at the beginning of the path list and followed some instructions I found to enter it using the c prompt but still no.
If I type "java -version" it returns the expected result but if I try the same with "javac -version" it returns the error message, so the programme is there but javac won't work. Added to this if I ask the computer to search for the file "javac" it cannot find it eventhough the javac file is definitely in the bin folder.
Any help would be appreciated and I can supply any other information you need.
I am Having the same problem with the jdk1.6.0_11 only on the xp operating system.
My PATH in envirn variables is:
C:\Program Files\PC Connectivity Solution\;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%Syst emRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files\Samsung\Samsung PC Studio 3\;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_11\bin;
and my javac is in the bin directory.
i also changed the directory in comand prompt to where my source file are stored and even typed dir into that directory and the source files are showing please help as this is part of my course.
