I already added the path of my installed java, but the problem is I cannot compile my codes.

here is my path. .

%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_10

and then this is what happens when I compile. .

E:\Nerd's java files\Activity>javac Decision_Constructs.java
'javac' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

the path should inclulde the bin directory too. so just include C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_10\bin instead of what you have now.
