Of all my posts, the one that gets most number of comments is – “Javac is not recognized as internal or external command”
Due to heavy incoming comments, I stopped approving them long back to avoid the page become a giant one. However there are still users who’ve been commenting that they were not able to fix the issue. So creating this separate page to receive all such comments and provide help fix the issue. Others can also pitch in and help answer the questions/comments.

Thank you very much Srini
I have tried all of the above steps but when I try to install netbeans I am still getting the error message that it can’t find Java. I ran path in CMD and java is there and it is set correctly in environment variables under JAVA_HOME and PATH
the error message is JDK 7 or above is not found.
It’s still not working. I have followed all the steps and I can see ‘JDK’ when I type ‘set path’. If I type ‘java’ I get a list of java commands. If I type ‘javac’ I get ‘javac is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file’
Does anyone have any idea on what is happening and how to fix it?

I made a new folder in c and installed java in it.
Setting the path did not help and i’m having javac not recognized…. Please help
Thanks for the detailed description. It was really helpful.
thank you sir its working now
I have installed jdk 1.8 on my system. However ,I am also getting the same error for javac. When tried to follow the steps mentioned, I am not able to edit the System variables while setting the path.
Thanks in advance!
Hmm..If you were able to install, you must be having admin privileges and so should be able to edit system variables. Please elaborate at what step it’s stopping you from editing.
Also, have you tried setting the path from CMD as well?
Very helpful tips,
I will use the same to solve issues of my company Indiaaccess Servers and Hostasp Servers
Thanks for your info
