When I enter a command starting with "java" from command prompt, I get the error "Java is not recognized as an internal or external command."

I think I have installed Java on the computer.

Please tell what is going wrong.

Thanks!

Sounds like the path to the Java exe is not in your $PATH environment variable, so you will need to specify the full path to the java exe. Or you can add it to the $PATH environment variable
