Which environment variable is that? Why does it have so many components in? Does %JAVA_HOME% and with \?

javac.exe file could not be located so there is a flaw in the path or your Java installation directory, if at all.
Whats does echo %JAVA_HOME% prints?
And when you type javac alone and hit enter, do all the command options come up on your console.

The biggest gamble will be to ask a question whose answer you know in that it will challenge your theory |

Sorry for the spelling error; I meant to say does %JAVA_HOME% end with \?
Please post the text of the whole of your PATH.

Do you have a JDK installed? if so, go into it and fine where the "javac.exe" file is. from that directory, try running it to make sure it works.

If not, try re-installing. If so, make sure that that path is in your PATH directory.

You do not actually need a JAVA_HOME variable, which it looks like you don't.

There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors

In your screenshot, I see the following command:

cd /d ô"C:\MetoceanStation\web"?

Why is there a ô and a ? in that command? That does not look correct.

Agree with Campbell above - more information would be helpful. If you type the command:

java -version

and see output like

java version "1.7.0_40"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_40-b43)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 24.0-b56, mixed mode, sharing)

the java install is probably correct.

Can you also type the command set and post that output to see your environment?
I agree. Here's the link:
