cmd prompt private key amazon kindle


I’ve only done this a few times, but I’ve got myself muddled.

I am trying to sign for a release build.

I’ve gone through to the command prompt and change directory but it reports an error.
My debug.keystore is in: C:\Program Files (x86)\Corona Labs\Corona\Resources
This location is what populates automatically in my build application window.

I don’t know what I am doing, can anyone help??

The error is "

'keytool' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file."


You need to use the full path to the executable (so windows knows where it is).


A combination of these two youtube videos:

I had to update my Java to the latest JDK 8 verion, then create a path to the keytool.exe file.
On my pc it was this location:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_281\bin
I then followed the other video to create System Variables to short cut to the bin to help myself access it.

Then when used the command prompt and cd to the location I want to store my keystores, it was jobdone!!!

Just encase anyone else ever has this issue, or I do and need to refer back here for the soloution!!
