Subject [jira] Commented: (MNGSITE-146) Installation Instructions don't work for Windows
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2011 10:09:40 GMT

Jim Goodwin commented on MNGSITE-146:
-------------------------------------

Also, notice that there is no \bin directory under apache-maven-3.0.3, so setting %M2_HOME%\bin
per the instructions won't work.

> Step 3 of the Installation Instructions on this page http://maven.apache.org/download.html
say to add %M2_HOME%\bin directory to the PATH environment variable.  There is no %M2_HOME%\bin
directory. For example, when I extracted the downloaded archive, I extracted it to c:\apache-maven-3.0.3.
That is supposed to be path for M2_HOME, however there is no \bin directory under that path.
There is a \bin directory under c:\apache-maven-3.0.3\apache-maven.
> The end result is that running the mvn command results in "'mvn' is not recognized as
an internal or external command, operable program or batch file."
> Here is the content of my M2_HOME environment variable: 
> C:\apache-maven-3.0.3>echo %M2_HOME%
> C:\apache-maven-3.0.3
> Here is the content of my PATH environment variable:
> C:\apache-maven-3.0.3>echo %PATH%
> C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program
Files\IntelWiFi\bin\;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intel\WirelessCommon\;C:\Program Files\TortoiseSVN\bin;C:\apache-ant-1.8.2\bin;C:\IBM\SDP\runtimes\base_v7\java\bin;C:\apache-maven-3.0.3\bin
> Following step 7 of the instructions results in:
> C:\apache-maven-3.0.3>mvn --version
> 'mvn' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch
file.
