|I have to install an application whose pre-requisite is "It is necessary that the path to java bin directory is added to the path environment variable". I have JDK 1.5 installed in Programme Files (x86) folder of my Windows 2008 R2 64bits OS. In Environment Variables>"User Variables for administrator" as well as "System Variables" i have added the following path:|
in Variable name: JAVA_HOME in Variable value: C:\Program Files (x86)\java\jdk1.5.0_22\bin
this is the installation path for my JDK. now if i use 'Progra~1' instead of complete folder name ... there might be conflict bewtween Program Files and Program Files (x86). what am i doing wrong in adding the path?
i test the path by typing 'java -version' in CMD. so far it doesn't give any result.
I am a newbee so please be with your explainations to me :)
