Hi,

I hope someone can help me with this. I have been trying to get tomcat running for a couple of days and I cannot figure it out. I've tried starting it from the command line on windows 7 and this is what I get out:

C:\Users\mgriffin>cd C:\Tomcat_Home\bin

C:\Tomcat_Home\bin> startup.bat

C:\Tomcat_Home\bin>call "C:\Tomcat_Home\bin\catalina.bat" start
The syntax of the command is incorrect.
C:\Tomcat_Home\bin>

My startup.bat file is as follows:




I have set my environment variables CATALINA_HOME and JAVA_HOME to point at the tomcat directory C:\Tomcat_Home and java directory C:\Program Files\Java\jre6
