Embarassing but here goes. I've finally decided to learn a programming language and Java is my choice. I downloaded the SDK program from SUN and I "think" I'm ready to go. I created the first "Hello World" program in Notepad and then proceeded to run it per the tutorial on SUN's website....but I have no command prompt to run it from? (I think). I'm running Win XP. Is it hidden? Or am I totally lost? Thanks for any help
Well you do have a command prompt, but you just cann't find it Click on the Start button (bottom left hand corner) Find the run... option, click on it. When presented with a space to type, type command, or cmd. That will bring up your command prompt.
