Hello,

Might be a stupid question, but I downloaded Ant v. 1.7.1. I want to install it under the Win XP system. In the installation instruction there is a point:

"Add the bin directory to your path"

What do they mean by "your path"?

Okay, I know now.

They mean the environment variable named "PATH"

The PATH environment variable.
This KB article explains how you can edit environment variables in Windows XP.
