    Well I'm new to Computers My old computer was a windows And this new one is a vista. Back to the Point I really don't know anything accept the basics.

    I downloaded the new java as of today 9/10/09 and I'm trying to play a Private server and look at codes ect. I get this message everytime i try and open the client. 'java' is not regonized as an internal or external command, Operable program or batch file. Press any key to continue.

    I did not have this problem on my old computer!!!!!!!


    Someone told me to check my Path and told me to add the end Info: %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\Sy stem32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0\bin;

    You don't just download it into Program Files. You'll need to run the installer that you will have downloaded. Read the installation instructions.

    also, make sure that your path to the bin folder is correct. java doesn't always install to the same place.

    That link above ^^^^ had since died, but I'm having this issue after upgrading to Windows 7
    Java Code:
    'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file.
    Previously, I've tried conquering this with one tutorial, then I followed the directions at Answers.com - How do you stop the error 'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command operable program or batch file
    Which resulted in me just shifting the location of the ';', which produced no improvement

    And I did confirm my current Java install was located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin
    I'm able to use Java no problem from standalone Java executables, only have the issue when I'm running them from the command line (so I can pass them data before they launch)
