I am having version problems of tomcat as I have installed two versions at the same time. I am unable to run any of them. Please let me know how to uninstall them so that they will release the ports they r using (8080 or 80, in my case both are not working and not even 8443 which is given in server.xml).
Please help me as I am not able to run tomcat at all.

You may be running into problems with environment variables and/or registry entries that can't be removed by deleting the directory. At a command prompt use the SET command to see what your default environment variables say - particularly for CATALINA_HOME. Registry variables would be related to Apache Software Foundation - I find some under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE but there may be more. I don't recommend changing registry entries unless you know what you are doing. That said - if something is using ports 8080 and/or 80 it is because your system is running some program that uses them, perhaps your system is starting Tomcat as a service? Which Windows version is this? Bill [ September 01, 2004: Message edited by: William Brogden ]
