Java in Windows 7 - Help please!

I am a beginner in Java programming. I just downloaded JDK 1.7.0 to my Windows 7 laptop and wrote my first "Hello World!" program. I went to the command prompt and typed in javac and get the following response: "javac is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file". I have tried editing the Path file but I'm still getting issues. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks!


  • In the command prompt window instead of:
    type full path to javac, it must be like:
    "c:Program FilesJavajdk1.7.0_02injavac.exe"
