    First a bit of nitpicking: Dos is long dead, it doesn't even smell funny anymore; your operating system is MS Windows and it has a command line interpreter called cmd.exe. When you type something, it searches for something.exe at certain locations; when it has found it it runs the executable. The locations where it looks for such .exe files are listed by your 'path' environment variable and that variable doesn't contain the locations where javac.exe or java.exe are stored. You have to change the value of that environment variable 'path'. Check your operating system manuals how to do that.

    kind regards,

    Jos

    I am not going to give you "click this, click that, put two fingers in your nose" instructions. You do have to change your "path" variable.
