I am going to move this thread to the Tomcat forum. This topic for this forum is Servlets, and you will get better response to your question in the Tomcat forum, since you are trying to install Tomcat.
Good Luck

I've had the same problem myself. What it meant for me was that your JAVA_HOME environment variable is not correctly set, like i.e. c:\jdk1.4 either that or maybe you haven't defined your CATALINA_HOME path correctly for your tomcat? Hope this helps.

I had the same problem also. It was because in my JAVA_HOME had c:\j2sdk1.4.2_02 with a ; after it. When I removed the ; it worked.

1. I really hope you mean JAVA_HOME etc in upper case.
2. If the directory c:/j2sdk_nb/j2sdk1.4.2 does NOT HAVE a bin subdirectory you are using the wrong home. Seems to me we had somebody else with a similar problem really recently.
3. Are you setting the environment variables for the whole system or just one command prompt window.
