I tried to install netbeans 8.2 on Windows 7 Home 64bit.

First I installed JDK9 with JRE9, and I set up the environment variable, PATH and JAVA_HOME with the JDK Folder.

But when I try to start the Netbeans-installer it break up and says to install jdk properly, setting the JAVA_HOME, and try again.

Maybe I should rollback to JDK 8 or 7.

Is there a possibility to install netbeans ?

  • What exactly do you mean by "is there a possability to install netbeans"? – Ramhound Nov 15 '17 at 17:25

It's as you say. The NetBeans IDE 8.2 Installation Instruction page states requirements, which are:

The Java SE Development Kit (JDK) 8 is required to install NetBeans IDE. You can download the latest update of JDK 8 at http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads.

The PHP and C/C++ NetBeans bundles only require the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 8 to be installed and run. JDK 8 is required if you are planning to use any of the Java features.

JDK 8 is required to use JavaFX 8 features in NetBeans IDE 8.2.

Even in NetBeans Release Roadmap, you won't find anything about support for JDK9, there's only an article that says you can build NetBeans yourself.

    NetBeans 9. In other words, Netbeans 8.2 only supports JDK 8. You will have to wait for Netbeans 9 to be released to use JDK 9. JDK8 and JDK9 can be installed on the same system. in order to resolve your problem, you will want to install JDK 8 and JRE 8. – Ramhound Nov 15 '17 at 17:28
  • That's why, okay thank you, I will use JDK 8. The installer said I need JDK 8 or newer. Now it's good! – Tech-IO Nov 15 '17 at 19:28
