Make sure your setting is exactly...
The snippet you posted is missing "C:\" and has a space after "JDk" and another space after "20". (I don't think the uppercase "JD" should matter, but best to match this to the actual directory name, which is probably lowercase "jdk".)
Also, make sure it is separated from other PATH values by a semicolon with no spaces...
