Anyone running a 64 bit operating system will need to install the 32 bit edition of the JDK, and then TextPad will be able to find it. Once installed, you will still need to manually add the java commands to the TextPad Tools menu.

You can download it from here:

If you are going to use TextPad on Windows 7 64 Bit then you need to define your class path as this
.;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\lib\ext\QTJava.zip

The dot and semicolon are important. It has to be exactly this in order to run a compiled app in Textpad. You have to have them at the beginning and with a normal jdk install that is the exact path.

That needs to be set as the system variable under system and advanced system setting. The user defined setting will be the bin and lib folder. But for system variables the Class Path must be .;C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\lib\ext\QTJava.zip
