Ok so I posted earlier and maybe I am missing something w/ running a java program from the command line. Here is the path I have in the command line "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_14\bin"
Where do I save the .java files, I have read through a couple tutorials and maybe I just dont get it. I appreciate any help as I have searched and searched and cannot seem to get it.
I see your are using Windows. Windows uses special environment variables to hold certain information. There's one called PATH. It holds directories. If you type a command at the command line, these directories will be scanned to find the command. Try to type SET at the command line. You'll see PATH in the list. C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_14\bin must be in there.
'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file
Which means that your sdk bin directory is not in the PATH. Check this page which tells you how to edit the PATH in Vista. Edit it, and add "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_14\bin". Make it the first directory in the PATH.
Yeah it seems easy looking back but last night I was ready to rip my hair out. I appreciate the help. I really enjoy these forums, everyone is so helpful. I wish I had the money to do the 200 dollar class.
