are you trying to download the JRE or the JDK? and why can't you download it - is the site down, do you not have enough space on your hard drive, do you not know where to go to get it, or do you not know what to download?
are you trying to set the classpath, or the path? there is no such thing as 'class path'.
The more specific your question, the easier it is to help you.
There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

This is because the PATH is not updated. See the link to the installation instructions I posted above. Step 4 addresses this. [ April 15, 2008: Message edited by: marc weber ]
I am still unable to fix the error.. When i looked in c:\java I found three more folders jre1.6_01,jre1.6_02,jre1.6_03 I didnot find Jdk there. I am totally confused about the installation and setting the path.
