HOW TO INSTALL JAVA IDE

Problems Installing Netbeans on Windows 7

If you are having trouble installing Netbeans 6.5.1
on Windows 7, you might need to perform the following manual steps. Then you should be all set.



Ensure that the JDK is already installed.



If the installer is on a CD, Copy the EXE file for the Netbeans 6.5.1 installer onto your hard disk.



Note the location of the installer.



Open a

Command Prompt

running as administrator:



Go to

Start button

> All Programs >

Accessories


Right click

Command Prompt


Select

Run as administrator



In the

Command Prompt

use the

cd

command to change to the directory containing the installer.



Execute the following command to extract the contents of the installer: [
Note:

You might need to
change the name of the installer to match the one you have.]

netbeans
-
6.5.1
-
ml
-
java
-
windows.exe


--
extract



Execute the following command to manually execute the installer:


java


-
jar


bundle.jar



You will see rapid scrolling output in the Command Prompt window for a few moments, then the
installer window will appear to begin the installation process.Once Netbeans is installed on
Windows 7, you may also need to run Netbeans as an Administrator
--
especially for database, web
application and

web

services

development, which each require server resources
.



I have migrated my OS to Windows 7 because my previous windows went
to corruptness. The first development tools that I need to be installed were
jdk+netbeans. There’s no problem with jdk installation, but the problem
occurred when I installed netbeans. The installation could not be processed
because

JDK was not found
. It’s ridiculous because I have installed JDK
correctly. Here is the solution for this problem that I got from internet



get the latest

jdk

and

netbeans



open your command prompt (cmd)



runas your cmd with administrator privilege


runas /user:compName
\
administrator cmd



go to netbeans directory



extract the installer with the following command


java

netbeans
-
6.8
-
ml
-
windows.exe
--
extract



run the jar file


java
-
jar bundle.jar



finally follow the installation wizard until finish…
