Hi Eveyone, I upgraded to windows Xp and I'm having probs compiling with the javac command...it gives me this error message " 'javac' in not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file. What did was I saved the file again in the jdk1.3.1\bin folder and this time it compiled fine since the javac is in the bin folder...but I need to know why it won't compile from the jdk1.3.1 directory... this is what I did the first time c:\jdk1.3.1>javac FileName.java 'gives the error' I did this the second time c:\jdk1.3.1\bin>javac FileName.java ' it compiled can someone help please!! thanks in advance ------------------
You need to add the java/bin directory to the executable path. Should be able to set this in the Control Panel under System Properties/Environment Variables. I don't have XP so I'm not sure exactly where it is.
