    Default JDK installation

    Okay! So, I have installed Java JDK, and changed my PATH variable. Command prompt keeps giving me the same message...

    ....'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file

    I have traced my PATH all the way into the jdk1.6.0_23 folder, and cannot find the bin folder that is supposed to house javac. I don't know what i have done wrong. PLEASE HELP!!!

    If that bin (sub) directory is not there your JDK is probably incorrectly installed; if I were you I'd uninstall everything and install again.

    kind regards,

    I don't have any experience with version 1.6.0.23 (I have version 1.6.0.20 installed). Try to install that one (if possible), it should work flawlessly with all the default installation options. Do you have all the necessary rights to install software on your machine and no hyper active anti virus stuff installed?

    kind regards,

    Jos

    Are you sure you have set your path and classpath correctly? I am running it fine:
    Java Code:
    C:\Windows\System32>java -version
    java version "1.6.0_22"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_22-b04)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 17.1-b03, mixed mode, sharing)
    Try typing "java -version" in your command prompt (assuming you are running Windows).
    If it gives you an error, your class or classpath are probably not set up quite right.
    Java Code:
    C:\Windows\System32>path
    *;*;*;*;*;*;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_22\bin
    Something like ";C:\Program Files\Java\jdk 1.6.0_23\bin" should show up
    * = personal things that are none of your business :D
    If you want, I can do a TeamViewer install with you. It's a program that let's me (temporarily) control your computer (you can too while I'm doing it). I've done it with lots of other people.
    Cheers,
