Hello everyone, I'm a newbie to Java;), just started a course last week and ya~ having a classical trouble trying to make javac run on my home machine.
so when I type "javac *.java" in the command prompt, I get " 'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external bla bla bla..." I have looked around for solutions and typed other pieces of command and here's the results:
java version "1.6.0_20"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_20-b02)
Java HostSpot(TM) Client VM (build 16.3-b01, mixed mode, sharing)
C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32 \Wbem;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_20\bin
so it looks like the path is correct (my java sdk is indeed in that directory, and there is a javac.exe in the bin folder). I don't know what else can be wrong... I actually installed java sdk twice: after doing it once and then javac doesnt work, I restarted... tested again... and then reinstalled it (without manually uninstalling because I didn't find an unstall.exe) (the install.exe did ask "are you reinstalling?" and I assume it takes care of deleting duplicated files and setting all variables correctly).
btw I'm using windows xp
