Did you set the path environment variable?

What message(s) are you getting from command prompt? What is the path you installed JDK into and what did you put to be part of your environment variable? Please TellTheDetails, so we will be able to help you.

The quieter you are, the more you are able to hear.

mesage: javac is not recognized as an internal or external command...
Path= C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_10\bin
Enviroment variable starts with C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_10\bin; C:\windows\system32; etc;

Remove any spaces in the PATH envar and try again. Report the result here, and this time round, copy/paste from the command prompt and system variables box. Don't paraphrase.

luck, db

Instead of moving the JDK to a directory path that doesn't contain any spaces, it is probably easier to just put quotes around the PATH variable (so that it can be in a path that has a space).

Thanks, problem was that, I put space after semicolon in Path variable.
now java command works fine, but javac still not recognized.
CLASSPATH and JAVA_HOME is set to the same folder

*sorted it out by adding environment variable Path another value C:\Progra~2\Java\jdk1.7.0_10\bin; and it worked
