Now press save. After it tick the following keys CTRL, SHIFT & ENTER Give it a name and save it.
- Now we need to create a folder, to put the file you just downloaded into it. Create a folder at a safe location in any if your drive, and the move the file run_java.bat inside it.
- Now we need to add it to the
SYSTEM ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES, so to do this right click on My Computer in Windows 7 or This PC in Windows 10, Goto -> Properties -> Advance Options -> Environmnet Variable. Inside path click NEW now copy the path of the folder that you made in which you moved the runcpp.bat file & paste it here in new path and save it.
