I am having trouble getting Maven 3.0.3 to install properly. I have read over Unable to install Maven on Windows: "JAVA_HOME is set to an invalid directory" but none of the answers were able to solve my problem.

This is what I did:

  • Went to and downloaded
  • Extracted files to C:\Program Files, so I now have a directory called apache-maven-3.0.3
  • Went to my system's environment variables and created user variable M2_HOME, value is C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.0.3\bin
  • JAVA_HOME variable is set properly, can get version from cmd line
  • Edited PATH so the value is now %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files\TortoiseHg\;%JAVA_HOME%;%M2_HOME%

When I go to cmd, I this is what I get:

   D:\>java -version
    java version "1.6.0_25"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_25-b06)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.0-b11, mixed mode)

    D:\>mvn --version
    'mvn' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.

However, if I am actually in the directory I can do the following:

D:\>cd C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.0.3\bin


C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.0.3\bin>mvn --version
Apache Maven 3.0.3 (r1075438; 2011-02-28 11:31:09-0600)
Maven home: C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.0.3
Java version: 1.6.0_25, vendor: Sun Microsystems Inc.
Java home: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_25\jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: Cp1252
OS name: "windows 7", version: "6.1", arch: "amd64", family: "windows"

Is this how it should actually work? From what I have been told I should not have to be in the directory like that to use any mvn commands. Thank you for your time!

  • possible duplicate of Maven 3 installation
  • You're missing an enviroment variable M2.
  • your M2_HOME should be C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.0.3. And I doubt the fact that you're able to print the java version is coming from your PATH variable, as you're supposed to set it to %JAVA_HOME%\bin.
  • Same problem, but the solution that worked for him does not work for me
  • Changed so I have M2 = %M2_HOME%\bin, M2_HOME = C:\Program Files\apache-maven-3.0.3, Path = %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;C:\Program Files\TortoiseHg\;%M2%;%JAVA_HOME%\bin. Still having the same problem, unfortunately
