I am not able to run tomcat application server on win98.
When I run startup.bat, it gives me the message "out of environment space"
eventhough the JAVA_HOME environment variable has been correctly set.
Please provide me the solution as this is very urgent.

Windows 98 only allocates 256 bytes for environment space by default. You can fix this by increasing the amount of environment space available. You do this by adding a line like this to config.sys:

Alternatively, you can also fix this by removing the number of entries in your PATH or removing any unnecessary arguments included in startup.bat.

Set your environment size MUCH larger, I used 4096 back when I still had a Win98 machine.

Thanks for your reply.Now its giving one more error message stating that
1) Message Box: Error Starting Program

The TOMCAT5W.EXE file is linked to missing export NETAPI32.DLL:netWkstaGetInfo.

2) Message Box: D:\tomcat\bin\tomcat5w.exe

A device attached to the system is not functioning.

Dont run the .exe file. Just extract the distribution files to a directory and setup the PATH, CLASSPATH, %CATALINA_HOME% env variable, and run startup.bat
