At c: (my main HD where java is installed) I typed 'java' and got:

'java' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Can you advise how to add to the search path?

WL starts up just fine. (From what I've been told WL is not dependend on any locally installed
java??) In any event, WL7 starts up just fine for me and I am actually using the console for that.
It's the apps that are java based I believe, that the problem stems from, like WebLogic Workshop
