Hi,

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.

Please help to resolve this.

Thanks,
Vinod

Hi Vinod,

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

Make sure you uninstall the current one.

You might want to refer to this recent thread.
