I'm running the server on xp but when you try to launch Deploytool, all that happens is that the ms dos prompt appears and disappears... Any ideas on what is going on or how to fix this? Ive set up the environment variable according to the documentation

try to open a command prompt and execute it from there, then you can see the error message.

Welcome to JavaRanch "javacoffee javacofee",
We don't have a lot of rules around here. In fact the one big rule is "Be nice." But there's another one that requires you to use a display name that is either your real name or looks like a real name. Remember the JavaRanch naming policy that you read when registering?
Please take a minute to change your display name to show two names, preferably real names. It's all about maintaining our professional image - don't let's the one-eyed moose fool you!
Hope you'll be visiting the ranch often,
