Hi ,

I am not able to run mvn -help or mvn -v command on the command line ..

This is what I have done :

User Variable


JAVA_HOME is set and java -version is appearing correctly.

On the Command line when i do mvn -v or mvn -help , I am getting the
standard error , 'mvn' not recognised .

what should I do ?I think the settings are correct.

Please help !!

Thanks in Advance

try typing "%M2_HOME%\bin\mvn". That will test your PATH setting.

Set M2_REPO ENV variable also...Maven repository variable also
