The first step toward finding out what is going wrong is to execute the startup.bat from a command prompt window.

Open a command prompt window, navigate to the Tomcat bin directory and execute startup.bat - if you are lucky, informative error messages will appear.

Note that your environment CLASSPATH is totally ignored by Tomcat. A typical Tomcat installation will include a class-loader-howto.html file in the webapps/docs directory which explains a lot.


I agree. Here's the link:
