Hi all. I'm just learning java and I was wondering if you could all help me out here.
I just installed jdk on my computer under C:\Program Files\Java
But when I try to path it under enviromental variables. It doesn't seem to work.
My path is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0\bin and when I type javac at the command line it gives me an error.
It works when I go to access it manually with the cd command. But I can't seem to get the path working.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Cheers, John

did you open a new command window after setting the path? type "echo %path%" and see if the path to the JDK is really there.

So yeah. Its in the right place but it doesn't seem to work when I do javac.
