When installing apache-maven-3.0.4 on Windows 7 (64-bit), environment variables do not expand in %Path%

  1. Do not follow the instructions for installing apache-maven-3.0.4  on “Windows 2000/XP”, or your final test running mvn –version to verify that it is correctly installed will fail.
  2. When adapting the Environment variable path, do not use %M2_HOME%\bin, but rather repeat the explicit path, e.g. “G:\conf\lang\java\apache\maven\apache-maven-3.0.4” 
  3. maven install
  4. Why is that?

    Thanks! Now if I would only have one of these apache-mavens I would benefit from this advice, my young man. This sounds like an all-knowing Native American. Do many people install them into their windows. Many people don’t even “do windows.” Boy, this is confusing for a 65-year-old retired English teacher. But the FYI is super.

      Heck, it’s even confusing for a not-yet-retired German teacher. 🙂

      That’s why I kept it out of my “teacher channel” (at least for the time being, eventually I hope to generate language learning exercises using an NLP platform, most of which are written in JAVA, and many of which use Maven as part of their IDE).

      My “teacher channel” for English (i.e. ESL) you can view here: https://plagwitz.wordpress.com/?category_name=english+audience-is-teachers.

      Thanks for dropping by!

        Well, my friend, if you’re in PA, your pension will be great. Anywhere else, well,we’ll have to talk. Invest in the 403B, my German teacher.

        Now back to the Java. I have that ONLY in the morning, with my breakfast. JAVA.

    I blend both Folgers Black Silk and Giant brand espresso. No one can top that, even Starbucks, which is toooooooo overpriced.
