Im trying to set my new laptop up to do java programming work on. when i try to compile a file i get the javac not recognised as internal external command error. ive tried different help topics including the http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/getStarted/problems/ link but their solutions dont solve the problem. anyone have any idea why this might be?

im using a windows vista operating system if that helps.

This is because your system is not able to locate java.
Here you have two options :
1. Open a command prompt window. Then write set path=%JAVA_HOME% where JAVA_HOME should be your path to the bin directory in your java installation. So, say for example you have Java installed in your C:\Softwares\Java directoryyou should put the path as set path="c:\Softwares\Java\bin" 2. The option above has to be done for every new shell. Instead of that you can do with a permanent option which is by adding the same java installation path to your PATH Environment Variable.

I tried both of these suggestions and got the same error.
