Re: Making java work
Ok, give this a try:
In windows, open up your system properties window by going to "start" and right clicking on my computer and selecting "properties". You are now looking at general system information, right? From there, go the the advanced tab, where there should be performance, user profiles etc. At the very bottom, there is a button labeled "environment variables" - click it.
Once you are in the enviro window, edit the "Path" variable so that the first entry is something along the lines of C:\Program Files\Java\<java version>\bin;
Next, add a new variable called "CLASSPATH", and give it a value of "." (no quotes). Click ok to all the windows, reboot, and try compiling. Good luck - let me know if you have troubles.
