Im having a problem getting the 1.4 beta to run under XP. I added the path and claspath variables in the right spot, but everytime i go to compile it says it doesnt recognize javac. But if i put the source file in the /java/bin directory then i can compile and run just fine. Anyone else had any problems like this? I have no clue what is wrong and its annoying.
It looks like Valentin has both answered Thomas' question, and diagnosed Andy's problem, in the same post. Well done. Andy - I don't have XP to test on, so I'm just guessing. Do you get the same message when you type "javac" that you would when you type any unrecognized string, e.g. "javab" or "qwyjibo"? If so, I'd concentrate on the system path rather than class path. But I don't have much else to offer - sorry...
Thanks Thomas and Valentin. A boatload of help that was. :roll:

Sorry Andy, I couldn't help Now seriously! What is the error message exactly ? Sounds like the PATH variable is not set correctly... Say you have Java installed in C:\>jdk1.4 then the PATH should be PATH=%WHATEVER%;C:\>jdk1.4\bin [ January 16, 2002: Message edited by: Valentin Crettaz ]
