    Default Can't download JDK

    Hello
    I would like to learn programming very much, however I have run into a very frustrating problem
    I tried installing the JDK/Netbeans bundle but when I clicked on the Netbeans icon after it finished downloading it said "JVM creation failed"

    So I deleted everything and tried again. When I try to download JDK again and remove the old one it says

    "Error 1723: here is a problem with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor. Action [2], entry: [3], library: [4]"

    Now nothing works. What do I do now? I have no idea what any of this means

    Thanks for reading and thanks in advance for your help

    My suggestion is to learn without an IDE. Use notepad++ and command line, or any other text editor(you can use ides if you want, but self compiling could be beneficial)

    Check this video: TheNewBoston – Free Educational Video Tutorials on Computer Programming and More! Ľ Java Programming Tutorial – 1 – Installing the JDK

    Here is a quick explanation, go to java.sun.com(it should forward you to the right site), then on the right side click java SE Jdk, it should bring you to a new page, download the SE Jdk for the correct environment. Install it and navigate to your containing folder and find the bin folder. In the bin folder you should see javac as well as many other things. Right click on something in the bin file and click properties, then copy the path.

    Next open start, right click my computer, my memory is fuzzy on the rest but you are looking for environment properties and you want to paste in the path. The video goes over this for you.

    Next step is to write a program in your text editor of choice
    Java Code:
    public class H{
      public static void main(String[] args){
        System.out.println("hello, world");
      }
    }
    I find it helpful to save this in a file in a folder right off the c drive(something like c:/javacode is what I use)

    Save the file as H.java, then open cmd(start->run->cmd), and cd to the directory containing your java file, finally type
    Java Code:
    javac -cp . H.java
    This will compile it, and finally to run it type
    Java Code:
    java -cp . H

    Thanks (too bad, you're getting one anyways), but that the post in the forum to which that link brings me is saying to download Windows Installer Clean Up Utility. However, that was removed from the download center because it caused many other problems. However I can still find it on other sited. Should I proceed with the installation?

    You could try if you think the site is safe. Or you could manually remove all traces of java from your pc in every way possible. Or use system restore. Whichever is most convenient and safe. I wouldn't risk harming my pc or files. However I would like to point out that your problem is no longer a Java problem, it is a Windows problem, and hence, should be dealt with appropriately.
    You know what to do!

    Windows forum ahoy.

    The Windows Installer Cleanup Utility has been expired by the Microsoft but user can still obtained it or same type of software from many 3rd-party download sites.However it is known that it may cause potential damage to Office 2007 installation - that is the reason MS has discontinued Windows Installer Cleanup Utility. But you can still get the programs that work much better then Windows Installer Cleanup Utility and donít conflict with any program in Windows. You can download this software from the link provided below and fix your problems with that. It is most updated software with many additional features.
