JDE 4.6.0 - Cannot run program "javac"

Does JDE 4.6.0 work on Vista?  I have the above problem.  I have both jdk1.5 and jdk1.6 installed.

Re: JDE 4.6.0 - Cannot run program "javac"

can you run javac from a command line window?

 

If not, you'll need to update the PATH variable to include the JDK/bin directory.

A search for "javac" returned this.  If you're still having problems please post a follow up.

No, I still cannot get it to work on Vista.

 

Eclipse is unable to launch child processes unless run as administrator.  However, if you run it as adminstrator you cannot access network drives (where my workspace lives).

I feel your pain. I had so many issues (under Vista) with the RIM dev tools, and the Desktop product, and Javaloader, that I eventually bought another machine with XP, just for BlackBerry development.

 

Life is just too short to deal with all of the OS friction.

Re: JDE 4.6.0 - Cannot run program "javac"

The 4.6.0 BlackBerry JDE support Vista, however it does require the 32 bit JDK.  What JDK versions do you have installed?  What is your PATH environment variable set to?  What is the result of running the following from a command prompt:

 

java -version
