I am new to HP PPM, presently facing issues with setting Java Home directory path while installation.
During installation there is an option to setup Java Directory name & i get pop up error "C:\jdk1.5.0\bin is not a valid JAVA_HOME parameter value. This directory must include a bin\jave.exe file."
Earlier Java was installed in C:\Program Files.... it was giving the same error. Now i have uninstalled & reinstalled JAVA in C:\jdr1.5.0 folder. Still get the same error. I have already setup Env Variables to the correct path whr Java is installed.
It seems that your JAVA_HOME directory doesn't contain JAVA.exe.
To test this working Please try to run these two commands;
If you are able to run these command and getting option which are like how to use them it means you JAVA HOME and Path is Properly Configured.Other you have to configure JAVA HOME and Class Path again.
Please provide comlete path in HOME setting where is you JAVA.exe located in your JRE folder or JDK folder.
the value of the JAVA_HOME variable is NOT correct, it should be something like "C:\jdk1.5.0\", since PPM is looking for the executables in the %JAVA_HOME%\bin directory. (this is also what the error message states).
Guys, I have downloaded jdk1.5. software from sun.java.com & installed it in C:\JAVA JAVA is a folder in C Drive where JDK, JRE etc are installed. There are folders with jdk... & jre... in JAVA folder... Have set the same thing as path in Env variables.
Please check once that in environment variable setting you have only one JAVA_HOME.It may be that its still pointing to older reference.If this is the case please remove older java_home variable or Add new JAVA_HOME varaible in the starting of the path not at the end.
Try to check JAVA_HOME, please try using command.
c:\>echo %JAVA_HOME% c:\>echo %PATH%
Make sure you have added % % at the time of declration of JAVA_HOME.
Can you try following steps? > Download the installable jdk1.5.0_17 from www.java.com > Double Click on setup.exe > Set Root Directory = C:\Java > Follow the onscreen instruction to install the Java with jdk > Set the JAVA_HOME as follows >> Go to My Computer Properties >> Advanced >> Environment Variables >> System Variables >> New >> Variable Name = JAVA_HOME >> Variable Value = C:\Java\jdk1.5.0_17 >> Click Ok
Do you have cygwin installed? Share the result of following commands, echo $JAVA_HOME echo $PATH
