    Verify that the path you added to your PATH variable is indeed the location of the Java bin folder. Does the actual path have the "(x86)" part?

    Don't add javac. Add the path to your bin folder, where ever it is. You don't even have the JDK from your screenshots. Just the JRE. Add it's bin folder to your PATH variable.

    I couldn't care less for being reped. That's not the reason I post on these forums.
    You just open the Path variable for editting as you did when you posted the screenshot above. Then you put a semicolon followed by the path to your bin folder and save that.

    You could start by typing the name correctly.

    I do also have the same problem. I set the path to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16\bin. But it will not work. If I set the path in C prompt, it will work. This what I do at C prompt:
    C:\>PATH=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16\bin
    C:\>echo %path%
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16\bin

    If I ask the version it will work then. Somebody said about making the Var-Env short, please tell me how to do this.

    How are you setting the path and what operating system are you using?

    Its working now. There was a space after ";" at Variable Enviroment. I just remove the space. the path is now: %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\Sy stem32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_16\bin. There are no spaces after ";"
