Hi all, I'm very new to this so pardon my basic questions. I recently installed Oracle 11g and it came with SQL Developer.
However, when I attempt to start SQL Developer from the Windows Start menu, I get a popup that says cannot find SQLDEVELOPER.BAT.
I have looked around for this file in the Oracle folder in Program Files but did not find it. I did find the sqldeveloper.exe.
When I double click on sqldeveloper.exe I get the following, a dialogue box pop-up that wants the full path name for java.exe.
Note that the version of SQL Developer that ships with Oracle 11g is rather old. In my opinion, the best approach would be to download the latest production release:
Choose Windows 32-bit - zip file includes the JDK1.6.0_35 and unzip it into an empty directory. It will run on either 32-bit or 64-bit Windows systems and already contains the correct JDK, so you avoid having to worry about that.
