I read the instructions and installed java, then I tried to add the java binto the path , but when I tried to use the program to test my file, it didn't recognize the javac command as anything. I'm a total beginer at java and don't really know how to add the path to the java program. Please help.
There are lots of other posts up regarding installing Java and configuring your path. I did a search and this one looks pretty good.
If you have other problems, post where your java folders are located on your machine and also it may help to post your path variable. Feel free to ask more questions as you need, that's what this place is all about.
The very existence of flamethrowers proves that at some time, some where, some place, someone once said to themselves "I'd really like to set those people on fire over there, but I just can't get close enough".
Please tell us the full path of where you installed Java, and copy and paste your full PATH variable here. Also tell us what operating system you're using.

I installed my java in the my C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_10\bin As for the Path. I'm not sure if I found the right one when I tried to put it there. it was in the environment variables. here it is: %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI.ACE\;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Roxio Shared\DLLShared\;%JAVA_HOME%\bin;C:\Program Files\QuickTime\QTSystem\ This might be from the last time I tried to install java for my class. :roll:
