Netbeans install fine, but on launch claims JDK can't be found

P: n/a
Hi
i just installed Netbeans on my windows pc and it installed fine. but when
i try to run it i get:
JDK 1.3 or later cannot be found on your machine. Please read the README
file.

i read the readme file but to no avail..i'm still working on the problem,
but i thought posting it might save me some time. if anyone knows what to
do, let me know.

thanks
joseph

did you check your environment settings?
They should contain:
1) JAVA_HOME=<javainstalldirhere>

2) PATH variable should cointain the path to the <javainstallhere>/bin

Or you can add:

-jdkhome <JDK directory>

to your ide.cfg file as described here:

Hi
thanks for your help..Netbeans now works..funny thing is, the very thing you
told me to do i did before, except for the JAVA_HOME way...now, it does
work, and by both ways as well (ie either setting JAVA_HOME or that config
file)...

thanks
Joe
