    Default Javac is not recognized?

    Well, I am taking java programming as a class this year and I would like to get a head start. And I have downloaded jdk and have put the variables in. Here are my varriables

    Path:
    Java Code:
    %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\Sy stem32\Wbem;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem
    Java Code:
    JAVA_HOME:C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_14
    I am pretty sure that it has something to do with my path variable. I am on windows vista so could someone give me to code. As you see I am new to java and I would like to learn it. Also, does anybody know how to change the colour of the command prompt? Thanks and please be nice Im new here.

    I was going to refer you to the Getting Started trail in the Sun tutorials but their site is down right now. It walks you thru the process, includes screen shots.
    You want to add the path to your jdk bin to the end of your environment variable path.
    If your path ends like this
    %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\Sy stem32\Wbem;C:\Program Files (x86)\QuickTime\QTSystem
    then you:
    append a semi-colon
    Java Code:
    ...\QTSystem;
    append the path to your jdk bin
    Java Code:
    ...\QTSystem;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_14\bin

    They’re back: Trail: Getting Started.
    See 4. Update the PATH variable (Optional) under Installation Instructions on release notes.
    Also, see Common Error Messages on Microsoft Windows Systems on Compiler Problems.
