Hi Mohan, I installed Tomcat 4.0.1 following your path, but when I double click startup.bat in the bin subdirectory, to start Tomcat, I got DOS message: "bad command or file name".These are the lines from AUTOEXEC.BAT file: PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\JDK1.3\BIN;C:\JDK1.3\LIB SET CATALINA_HOME=C:\JAKARTA-TOMCAT-4.0.1 SET JAVA_HOME=C:\JDK1.3 Can you help me? Thanks. Berko

hi Berko Dimitrijevic sorry for delay in reply check your autoexec.bat contains following lines apart from your own other entries for running other applications such as javamail etc PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND; set classpath=.;c:\jdk1.3\lib;c:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.1\lib; SET JAVA_HOME=C:\JDK1.3 SET CATALINA_HOME=C:\JAKARTA-TOMCAT-4.0.1 please ensure that you set JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME in autoexec.bat corresponds to your installation of these in your machine i have installed jdk1.3 and tomcat as C:\JDK1.3 and C:\JAKARTA-TOMCAT-4.0.1 and either restart the system or run autoexec on command line I you get out of environment space on start up do the following right click on startup.bat in bin dir and choose properties click on memory tab and set initial environment to 4096 you will notice windows create shortcut msdos program startup in the bin directory itself start tomcat bu double clicking this icon instead of startup.bat. pl do the same for shutdown.bat also hope this helps mohan
