Having problems getting SE batch file to work.
Have installed java
Have downloaded the updated .jar file
I have got it to work in the past ....

I tried installing into /using different directories - jre and bin but the command line fails.....

Is windows 8 the problem still ?

champagne helped me with a similar problem on Windows 8 (I don't remember it happening on 8.1). You need to set the path correctly:

Control Panel
System and Security
System
Advanced System Settings
Environment Variables
Path

then make sure Java is in that path, or add it.

I think Mike gave the right clue.

It's true that in the past Java updated the path as many applications do. May-be the problem came with the 64 bits version.
after the batch version work, You'll see also a strange warning, but the task is done.
