Please do not mark this as a duplicate of set JAVA_HOME in windows but "ant build" still fails

First and foremost, none of the solutions provided in the above question works to my situation with WINDOWS 10.

I have set JAVA_HOME environmental variable on WINDOWS 10 environment, but still unable to use the already set variable through an ANT script. Always get an error that JAVA_HOME environmental variable is not set.

Please check the following screenshot to gain more details about the issue that I'm facing with Java 8 and WINDOWS 10.

  • Your PATH variable appears to be far to long. Shorten each instance of say Program Files to its shorten version.

  • Thanks for the help though, I have a workaround that's working. I'm setting the variable via a batch file before the ANT script executes Apr 4, 2017 at 1:12
