I just downloaded tomcat 4.1.27 and installed it on windows 2000 professional machine. When I start tomcat I get the following errors:

I�ve set up the CATALINA_HOME environment variable to c:\tomcat 4.1 which is the directory where i installed tomcat. I�m using jdk 1.4.1_02 and the JAVA_HOME variable is set up correctly.
I�ve already tried to unistall tomcat and reinstall it attaching the server to another port but it also didn�t work.
Can anybody help?

The port has nothing to do with it - that error appears to come from a problem parsing an XML file. Did you modify anything before trying to start the standard Tomcat distribution?
When I downloaded Tomcat 4.1.27 a couple of weeks ago there was also a "hotfix" file that had to be installed - did you get it?

It was the hotfix... I did not download it.
Thanks.

Hello kelly,
I hope this is working now.
BTW, JavaRanch has a Naming Policy Please read and change your display name to one meeting the requirement. We look forward to seeing you here in the future.
