The path settings can be done at :
My Computer ->properties -> Advance tab->environment variables -> In the user variables,
define JAVA_HOME and point the location of java (where you installed in your system) to that variable.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Is there a particular part of the instructions you're questioning?

Please tell us what operating system you're using, and where exactly you installed Java.

You will need to set the PATH. But if you're new to Java, please do not set the CLASSPATH.

Hi,

I'm having exactly the same problem (I think).

I can't "javac" and have been trying to set the PATH to

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0\bin

because I'm pretty sure that's what I'm supposed to do, but it's not having any effect.

I'm feeling very stupid right now and was storming through my java book, feeling very clever until I actually tried to compile something!

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Here are some things to check:
  • Is there a version number on the jdk1.6.0 directory? For example, is the directory actually called jdk1.6.0_1?
  • When you added this to your PATH variable, did you separate it from other paths using a semicolon and no spaces? For example, ...someOtherPath;C:\Program Files...
  • After modifying the PATH variable, did you open a new Command Prompt session?
  • Let us know...
