Hi all, I have just installed the jdk on a windows7 machine 64bit. I run the first test application in the terminal and got the following message: "'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or both file". So I had a look online and found this tutorial http://java.com/en/download/help/path.xml which unfortunately it doestn't tell you what to modify the path variable to.
Now, looking on the Environment variables window, under system variables I have lots of variables and then there is a "Path" (not PATH though, not sure whether capitalization here makes a difference) which as a value has
C:\Program Files (x86)\NVIDIA Corporation\PhysX\Common;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Toshiba\Bluetooth Toshiba Stack\sys\;C:\Program Files (x86)\Toshiba\Bluetooth Toshiba Stack\sys\x64\;c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Ulead Systems\MPEG
One important thing to notice is that I have installed the 64bit version of the JDK because my machine has a 64bit version of windows, but for some strange reason the above Path variable seems to have a 32bit...
Now, can anybody kindly tell me what this should be changed to, or if I need to set up a new PATH and how so I can get the windows terminal to work properly
I so hate windows, I installed the jdk in ubuntu and everything worked perfectly...
