I've just downloaded JCreator LE to my new laptop, and I don't know how to set up the path. I have a note that says to go to My Computer, View System Information, Advanced, Environment Variables, and Path. Then I am supposed to type the path to the JDK at the end, but I don't know how to do this. This is what comes up when I hit the Path edit button:

%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem

Any ideas?
Regards - JS

You should add a ";" and the end of the existing path value and then locate your bin folder in your Java installed version Example:"C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_04\bin".

and that's it.

set the path in the user defined environmental variables. do not use the system environmental variables.

and basically for jcreator if u install the software itself it will automatically set the required path.

for java u need to set it like this

path = set path=c:\jdk1.4.2\bin;. (you have to put that ";" and "." explicitly)
