"out of environment space" - I bet you are using Win98. By default, Win98 does not allow enough space for environment variables in the command prompt window, and Tomcat sets LOTS of environment variables. You need to increase the memory - its a control you can reach from the properties dialog - right click on the upper left corner of a MSDOS window. I have forgotten the details. There was a discussion in this forum not long ago with better instructions, search for Win98. Bill
