hi ,i am using windows XP machine.
when i 'startup' tomcat i am getting this error
"The CATALINA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly.
This Environment variable is needed to run this program "
actually, i have set JAVA_HOME,CATALINA_HOME TOMCAT_HOME and also the path and classpath.
but i have not done DOS memory settings.when i right click on 'startup.bat' i do not see Memory tab etc...in the properties.

is the error corresponding to the DOS memory ?
where do i have to do the memory settings ?
can anyone tell me?
thanks

Are you using tomcat 3 or tomcat 4? 3 uses TOMCAT_HOME and 4 uses CATALINA_HOME.
Where have you defined them? In a batch file or in the system properties/environment tab?
How do you start tomcat? As a service or from a command line or from an icon?


I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.

So your problem was solved by a reinstall of Tomcat?
