Installing Java EE 5, how do I point to the JDK?

I am installing Java EE 5, which I just downloaded, and am being asked for the JDK.

I had it in C:\program files\java\jdk6u10 but it didnt seem to like this.
I tried pointing to the bin directory, still no love.

I keep getting the message: "Please point to an existing, compatible JDK version 5.0 or above


I moved the JDK directory to the newly created c:\sun and tried pointing to c:\sun\jdk6u10
and it doesnt work - same message. Tried pointing to the bin directory, still a no-go.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks,

Lynn

i got it to work.

i swear i had tried this the first time, but pointing it to
c:\sun\jdk6u10\jdk worked.

 
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
