    Default Can't run my JDK on windows 8.1

    Does anyone know how to open my JDK on windows 8.1 I click on Java Control Panel and click on the java icon. When I do, the command prompt rapidly appears and then disappears. Thanks in advance.

    You don't run the JDK from an icon in the Control panel. I don't know why there is a problem with that icon.

    If the JDK is installed, there should be a bin folder inside the installation folder that contains the javac.exe file that is used for compiling java programs.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.
