Tomcat 6 on Windows Vista

I have installed JDK 1.5.09 on Windows Vista, and everything works fine. But when I am trying to install Tomcat 6.0.18, it is not able to locate jre, even after giving the complete path. I checked on the Apache site, but could not find anything related to compatibility issue between Apache Tomcat and Windows Vista (Home Edition). Do I need any specific patch/version of tomcat to configure it over Windows Vista?
