i have installed Jave EE 5. and downloaded the jEdit software(for windows OS). i tried to install it, but it shows that JRE/JDK is not present. why this is happening? i have my windows system files and Java SDK in the G:/ drive, not in the c:. is this the problem?

i have also downloaded the jEdit for all platform, it is in .jar extension. how to install this software from this package? i have restarted my PC and checked, but nothing happened..

and also a small jave icon(hot tea cup) is in the bottom right corner of the screen. i shows JAVA EE 5 SDK as tool tip text.

please help.. thanks

I tried it and what you are supposed to do is to execute the jar.
Navigate to the folder where the installing jar is, and write
java -jar jedit1.23beta4installer.jar
(Or whatever the correct name of the .jar is.)
I agree. Here's the link:
