I installed Tomcat5.0 on my laptop with windows 2000. After installing tomcat after the windows reboot it get "fatal error" with blue screen. It shows a memory reference error while logging on to machine itself. I used "windows last known good configuraiton" option and logged in, uninstalled tomcat and I am not having problems. I reinstalled it and again the logon screens throws the blue screen the memory errors.
After installing tomcat after the windows reboot it get "fatal error" with blue screen. I don't know what caused the blue screen. Did you download the 5.0.28.exe version?
How about you use the 5.0.28.zip version? 1. Unzip the file into a convenient location. e.g c:\tomcat-5.0.28 2. Set the following environment variables: JAVA_HOME = c:\jdk-1.4 CATALINA_HOME=c:\tomcat-5.0.28 3. Startup the tomcat. c:\tomcat-5.0.28\bin\startup.bat 4. Open a browser and test the tomcat. You should see the tomcat main page. http://localhost:8080/ 5. Shutdown the tomcat. c:\tomcat-5.0.28\bin\shutdown.bat
