Hi,

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.

Thx
sharanya

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?
