Tomcat 5 and Tomcat 4 Install

I uninstalled F:\j2sdk1.4.1_01 from my system and installed F:\jesdk1.5.0. The environment variables are set as follows: set JAVA_HOME=F:\j2sdk1.5.0
When I tried to install either Tomcat 5 or 4 the install wizard selects the following:
F:\j2sdk1.4.1_01
What is pusling is that I have uninstalled it and there is no F:\j2sdk1.4.1_01 in my folder list.

Sounds like the old value is hanging around in the registry - I'm assuming windows here. How did you uninstall the earlier SDK?

Thank you for responding. I am using Windows 2000 on a local computer. I did uninstall using Control Panel Add/Remove Progrmas.

by jesdk1.5.0 I'm thinking you mean a J2EE SDK?

This *requires* a J2SE SDK anyways (the one you uninstalled), and the J2EE SDK is *not* required for Tomcat.

So, I think your option is to reinstall the "plain old" J2SDK 1.4x and use that one. If i'm mistaken about the J2EE thing, then you'll need to re-install your JDK anyways.

It seems that you have registry keys left over, and the uninstall should have taken care of them (have you rebooted?).

Sorry it is a typo. It is j2sdk1.5.0.
When I try to install Tomcat it detects F:\j2sdk1.4.2 which is no longer available. I uninstalled both j2sdk all versions and Tomcat. I then installed j2sdk1.4.1 and then when I try to install Tomcat it detects F:\j2sdk1.4.1 which is no longer exist. I point it to F:\j2sdk1.4.2 and finished the install. When I try to start (Windows services) Tomcat it gives me the following error message:
Could not start the Apache Tomcat service on Local Computer.
The service did not an error.This could be an internal Windows error or an interal service error.

I suspected it is a Windows register issue and was able to clean the register by using a very nice software I bought yesterday online. I was able to install it and run Tomcat as a service.
Thank you,
Maru

Glad to hear you found a solution. For completeness sake, what is the name of the utility you used to clean up the registry?
