Hi All,

I have my aplication deployed in tomcat 4.1.24.
As my system crashed i shifted this application to other system but when I am trying to start tomcat i am getting this error:

Using CATALINA_BASE: D:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.24
Using CATALINA_HOME: D:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.24
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: D:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.24\temp
Using JAVA_HOME: D:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_12
The system cannot find the file -Djava.endorsed.dirs=D:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.24\common\endorsed.

can anybody help me out whats the cause of this error and how to resolve it.

Does the path "D:\Tomcat\jakarta-tomcat-4.1.24\common\endorsed" exist??

I can also see that you have the JDK installed in a path with spaces - try to move the hole jdk1.5.0_12 folder to a location without spaces - e.g. in the root of the C drive, resetting JAVA_HOME to the new location, and add C:\jdk1.5.0_12\bin to your environment path.
