Hi. I got a problem about installation of Tomcat. I've downloaded jarkarta-tomcat-4.0.4.zip and extracted it at C:\ I edited C:\autoexec.bat as follows: SET CATALINA_HOME=C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4 SET JAVA_HOME=C:\J2SDK1.4.0_01 SET CLASSPATH=C:\jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4\common\lib\servlet.jar; SET PATH=C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND;C:\J2SDK1.4.0_01\BIN I'm using ME. However, I can't startup the Tomcat. Whenever I typed C:\jarkarta-tomcat-4.0.4\bin\startup, it got an error message saying that "The CATALINA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly.This environment variable is needed to run this program." Is it wrong about my settings? Also, is jarkarta-tomcat-4.0.4.exe functioning same as jarkarta-tomcat-4.0.4.zip? Thank you for your help!
the .exe file does everthing for you so you dont have to worry about setting all the varialbes etc, so in a way its preferrable. I am sure you have been told the ME is a road crash of an operating system so you are bound to be having some problems but I know other people who have managed to get it working so do keep going. You need to double check for the existence of those system variables, as they may not have been created despite your adding them to the batch file.
