Netbeans is a wonderful Integrated Developer Environment (IDE) which I use primarily for PHP development.
This is how I installed Netbeans in Windows 10. It actually took a lot of trial and error to narrow it down to these two steps.
- Install (Java) OpenJDK via “AdoptOpenJDK”
See Fig 1
- Install Netbeans version 11 (14 DID NOT WORK WITH NETBEANS)
Change to install all features
When I originally tried to install Netbeans I received the error during installation:
An unexpected exception happened in the thread main
I removed Open JDK 14 and installed “Adopt Open JDK 11 (LTS)”
Thank you, “AdoptOpenJDK” for the “msi” executable JDK file!
