    I'm a newbie with considerable computer web design training (nothing thus far with apps). After download of my newly paid for B4A, I attempt to configure the path to the top line on the Configuration window but I'm stuck.
    When I use the browse button and go to the pathway:
    C:\program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_162\bin I get the error message:
    'C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_162\bin\javac.exe' does not exist. When I
    navigate to the folders in the path I also find that there is no file
    javac.exe. Any ideas anyone? Perhaps I downloaded the wrong java development kit.
    P.S. I didn't know which of the Java development kits (JDK) to download so I chose the 32bit in the second list of the four lists (the jdk-8u162-windows-i586.exe). Perhaps that's my problem?

    The path should be similar to:
    C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_102\bin\javac.exe

    If you installed 32 bit Java then it will be:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.8.0_102\bin\javac.exe

    It must start with jdk.
