Netbeans 7.3.1: Specified JDK not found

I'm trying to exit the cave and brave the new world of IDEs and I'm being thwarted on a basic install of Netbeans 7.3.1. I have jdk1.7.0.25 installed and Netbeans can't find it.

"The specified JDK folder does not contain JDK."

It won't even recognize the JDK folder when I specify it manually.

hi Bill,

in the menubar, Tools -> Java Platforms, you should see the java platforms that NetBeans knows of.
If this is empty, add your Java platform here.

If this doesn't work, then maybe something went wrong your Java download?

Piet, are you referring to the menu in Netbeans? I'm unable to install so I have no menu available to me.

I do see there's a combo download of JDK and Netbeans at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk-7-netbeans-download-432126.html

Let me give that a try.

Yes, the menubar in NetBeans.

I started, couple of years ago, with the combined JDK and NetBeans too. Never encountered any problems..

Are you sure you have the JDK installed and not just a JRE? Post the results from running "java -version" at a command line.
What OS are you using?

Bill, it seems you've marked this topic as resolved. Is that correct, or do you still have difficulties?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
