Sudhir, If you have tomcat installed at C:\WINDOWS\DESKTOP\Tomcat 4.1 then your CATALINA_HOME setting should be like this set CATALINA_HOME=C:\WINDOWS\DESKTOP\Tomcat 4.1 No Quotes. It is always advisable to not have spaces in the path when dealing with java. NOTE: Setting CATALINA_HOME is optional. Don't set CATALINA_HOME and run tomcat from from BIN folder using startup command.
