I know that there is a very similar post to this one(Failed to locate the winutils binary in the hadoop binary path), however, I have tried every step that was suggested and the same error still appears.
I'm trying to use the Apache Spark version 1.6.0 on Windows 7 to perform the tutorial on this page http://spark.apache.org/docs/latest/streaming-programming-guide.html, specifically using this code:
./bin/run-example streaming.JavaNetworkWordCount localhost 9999
However, this error keeps appearing:
After reading this post Failed to locate the winutils binary in the hadoop binary path
I realized I needed the winutils.exe file, so I have downloaded a hadoop binary 2.6.0 with it, defined an Environment Variable called HADOOP_HOME:
with value C:\Users\GERAL\Desktop\hadoop-2.6.0\bin
and placed it on Path like this: %HADOOP_HOME%
Yet the same error still appears when I try the code. Does anyone know how to solve this?
