Hallo everybody!


I typed by the shell the command: cd C:\java, it show this error:the system cannot find the specified commad. I also updated the PATHvariable.


Thanks

I assume that you are following the Java Tutorial here which says Enter cd C:\java

If so, it is possible you missed one of the previous steps which provided instructions to create the directory C:\java and save the hello program to that file.

Naim,
In addition to confirming that you installed Java to that directory, can you confirm that you are Windows. Most people use "shell" when talking about Linux or UNIX - which wouldn't have a c: drive in the first place.
