Hi, i really want to learn java, however i followed every tutorial possible, it asks me to download java sdk.

I download it, and i recieve a folder in my c:/

When i try to compile "javac" it says "javac is an invalid command"...

I was wondering if someone could just teach me how to get past this bit maybe on messenger or here...

I would even allow a remote assistance so you can do demostrations...
I really want to learn this language,.... thank you.

Not to insult your intelligence, but it is always important to download the right thing, so did you download [this (https://jsecom15d.sun.com/ECom/EComActionServlet;jsessionid=jsecom15d.sun.com-3f8d%3A413e1fe6%3A8abd2fc69ed8fe12)]? If so, try following [these (http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/install-windows.html)] directions first. Good luck. :)

After you download and install the SDK you might need to add the bin directory of the SDK to the PATH environment variable. Right-click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties...", choose the "Advanced" tab, click the "Environment Variables" button, and in the System variables section there should be one called Path. You need to add the bin directory of your SDK to this variable separated by a semicolon.
