    Default Need help installing JDK/Texpad

    I can't get the run and compile command to work.

    I tried adding in control-1 and control-2 under Tools but it says

    "'control-1' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

    Tool completed with exit code 1"

    I think I'm to connect Textpad with the JDK but I don't how to do that...

    I read somewhere I have to add in Environment Varibales (Path) to C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_29\bin

    but that doesn't change anything.

    Another question, the JDK installs under Program Files, but Textpad installs under Program Files(x86). Is this correct?

    I'm not sure what you mean by "adding in control-1". From the error message it looks like whatever you added wasn't correct.

    I have Textpad, but have never used the tools so I decided to try it out. This is what I did:

    (1) I went to Configure... -> Preferences... and choose Tools.
    (2) I clicked the Add button and choose Java SDK Commands.
    (3) Three commands were created. I clicked OK
    (4) Under Tools -> External Tools -> ... three commands appeared. (Ctrl+1 to compile, and Ctrl+2 to run)
    (5) I wrote a small HelloWord.java file and tested compiling and running. My test program compiled and ran ok.

    The first step gives you the ability to remove existing tools which might be a good idea if they are not configured correctly at the moment.
