I just got Win2000 and can't figure out how to compile my java files. Anyone remember how? I have been using windows 98 and just now got the upgrade to 2000. I am a little behind the times, sorry!!

Should be exactly the same under W2K. Check your javac.exe is in your path.

What exact error message are you getting? If it's "bad command or filename" then yes, you do need to set your system path

Hi,
Sorry it took so long to get back. I put the complete address in the run box which is in the start menu but it just brings up a frame with the folder that I typed in.

In windows 2000 here is how you set your path and classpath.
Right click on My Computer and choose properties.
Then choose the Adcanced tab
Next click Environment Variables
In the System Variables, highlight the Path and choose Edit
Then append the path to you Java\Bin folder.
Next you need to add a ClassPath so choose New
In the Vairable Name Box, type classpath
in the variable value, type the path you need to specify.
That's it. OK all the way out and you are good to go. No need to restart the PC.

Gregg,
Hi. I did as you said I copied the system variable path but am not sure how to append it to the bin directory.
I added C:\jdk1.3.0_01 to the system variable and added a new classpath of the same (C:\jdk1.3.0_01)
Also, I have the path appended to my win98 application but It still wont work (C:\jdk1.4\bin)The java works but the javac, which is in the bin file, will not. It gives the bad command or file name error.

Did you reboot after you changed your environment path and classpath variables?

"Then append the path to you Java\Bin folder" means to append the path to <JAVA_HOME>\bin to your current path. For example, if your current path is
C:\;C:\WINNT;C:\java
it will be
C:\;C:\WINNT;C:\java;C:\jdk1.4.0\bin

Hi,
Yes, I appended it properly. I also rebooted. I made the class path the same as the path that I appended to the system variable.

PS I got win2000 javac working by adding jdk1.3, 1.3.0_01 and jdk1.4.0. I had to load all 3. I did the dsme with win98 but the compiler still will not work.
