I need help finding the location of my java_home/bin, or if it even exists. If it doesn't, what more do I need to install?
I am following some installation directions, and one of the steps says:
Ensure that the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) is installed on the computer and that the java_home/bin directory is defined in the system path.
I can't even find the path of java_home. Disregarding the directions for other OS, this is the closest I've come to finding something helpful.
However, when I type the prescribed command,
echo %java_home% it just returns
%java_home% as a string, percent signs and all. When I try
% java -version down further in the page, it tells me %java isn't a recognized command, program, or batch file.
I have Java 8 Update 60 installed, I can see it in my list of programs I can uninstall. From the quote though, I have in mind that if I have a JRE installed, then java_home\bin exists. However, I've had File Explorer search very nearly the entire computer, and found nothing.
