Hello expert,

Followed instructions at
to install Maven.
Gifs attached of the environmental variables and the Path variable.

When one does the mvn --version in the command prompt
cannot it be done from any where? I have tried Documents and Settings
as shown in the example and several other place but always  
get 'MVN is not recognized as an internal or external command'.
So I think the command prompt is looking for an exe called mvn
but cannot find it.

'MVN is not recognized as an internal or external command'.
Make sure that you've opened a new command window after setting environment variables
