i want to install tomcat.4.1.27.. i have downloaded tomcat.4.1.27.exe and saved it in my desktop.
when i click this exe file to install it says that
" could not find a Java Development Kit installed on this computer. Please download one
from If already there is \JDK installed on this computer set an enviornment
variable JAVA_HOME to the \pathname of the directory where it is installed"
In fact i have installed my Java Development kit in c:\jdk1.3
my autoexec.bat file is as follows:

path = c:\windows\command\;c:\windows;c:\jdk1.3\bin;
set JAVA_HOME = c:\jdk1.3\bin
whats wrong?? please help.

Don't set the variables in the autoexec.bat. I think you start the installation directly from the explorer. The autoexec.bat is only executed when a cmd shell is loaded. Set your variables in the system environment of windows. (right click on my computer -> properties -> advanced -> environment variables)

I think u should follow Oliver Refles method with setting JAVA_HOME to c:\jdk1.3 rather than c:\jdk1.3\bin
