The java SE development Kit JDK was not found

Asked By 50 points N/A Posted on -

Hi all,

When I try to install the NetBeans Package, I ended up with an error message. NetBeans IDE installer says that ‘the java SE development Kit JDK was not found in the computer’. However, I am sure; I installed it too in the computer. I do not understand why it is not able to recognize it. Please help me resolve the issue, Thanks.

Java SE Developent Kit (JDK) was not found on this computer

JDK 6 is required for installing the Net Beans IDE. Make sure that the JDK is properly installed and run installer again. You can specify valid JDK location using -javahome installer argument.

Ensure that you have installed the JDK properly. Ensure that both the environment variable is set correctly. Download "NetBeans IDE" installer. and choose the "Java SE" versions (e.g., "NetBeans-7.4-javase-windows.exe").

PATH = "%JAVA_HOME%bin" for Windows

JAVA_HOME = “C:Program FilesJavajdk<version>”

 NetBeans requires full JDK (Java Development Kit) installation and not just JRE (Java runtime environment). In case you have the full JDK installed, but still getting the error the try to run with the explicit javahome  command line. For Netbeans IDE version 6.0 and above: –

netbeans.exe –javahome C:Program FilesJavajdk<version>
