    Default JDK API Directory problem

    hi to all

    i started college on computer science, so im new in the java world
    my problem is that i cant compile anything , and i dont know what to do .
    everytime i try to compile a window appears saying "The JDK path has not been set", so i click on "setup JDK"

    then he asks me the JDk home directory and i input "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_24",

    my problem starts when he asks me the JDK Javadoc directory, and i tried everything here
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_24\docs - nothing
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_24\docs\api - nothing

    i decompressed the src.zip and also nothing

    ive donloaded (jdk-6u18-docs.zip) file and still nothing

    ive run out of ideas here

    sorry for my bad english, but im tired and im trying to solve this issue for the past 6 hours and i need to have this runing so i can studie

    ive installed first the (jdk-6u24-windows-i586.exe ), and then the (jcrea500_setup.exe), my OS is Windows7 utimate.

    thanks in advanced
    Marcus

    You don't really "need" the docs. But i'm pretty sure they're a separate download from the JDK.

    I'd recommend you stick with a basic editor and compiling from the command line until you know what's going on under the hood: "Hello World!" for Microsoft Windows (The Java Tutorials > Getting Started > The "Hello World!" Application)

    I'm not sure what jcrea500_setup.exe then. If he's compiling from the command line then he's in an area I'm not familiar with.

    I assume it's JCreator. But like I said, he should be compiling from the command line until he knows what's going on under the hood. That could take a week, or it could take months.

    The tutorial I linked to in my first reply should get you started compiling from the command line.
