Hello,
If I try to compile a programm in the bin directory I have no problem.

But when I try to compile a programm in another directory I got an error. I read a lot on this form and I think I need to set the CLASSPATH.
I foud only PATH but not CLASSPATH among Windows Alta Vista.
I wordk on the directory: D:\Java\Bin but I want to work on the directory: D:\Java|Bin\Food what is then the directory name in the PATHCLASS?
Is it then: D:\Java\Bin\Food? I've tried it but then the compiler cannot be found. Has anyone a solution?

And is the name by Alta Vista also CLASSPATH?

It would help to see the error message.

I've tried it but then the compiler cannot be found.


So that is a PATH problem. Your JDK's bin directory must be added to the PATH.

I've tried it but then the compiler cannot be found.


If I understand, your JDK is under D:\Java\Bin ? Don't mess with the JDK's bin directory. Put your sources somewhere else.

And is the name by Alta Vista also CLASSPATH?


10 years ago, I used a search engine called Altavista I think you're talking about Windows Vista ? Names of environment variables do not change there.

This appears to be a continuation of this discussion, so I shall close this thread.
