I have the problem in starting up the server.

I have installed jakarta-tomcat-5.0.12 and when I do startup.bat from
Installdir\bin\startup.bat I am getting following message in dos window

Using CATALINA_BASE: c:\java\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.12
Using CATALINA_HOME: c:\java\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.12
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: c:\java\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.12\temp
Using JAVA_HOME: C:\j2sdk1.4.2_01

and another dos window flash and disappear. How to fix this problem. Please help

In order to keep a Command prompt window on the screen so you can see what is happening, change the last line in startup.bat so that it reads "run" instead of "start".

That will execute the next batch file in the same window. Hopefully you will see the cause.
I agree. Here's the link:
