I have a problem with starting the Tomcat 5.5 .

I have set Environmental Variables as follows:

JAVA_HOME : C:\j2sdk142
CATALINA_HOME : C:Tomcat 5.5
CLASSPATH :%CATALINA_HOME%\common\lib\servlet.jar;

When i tried to startup, using the command : %CATALINA_HOME%\bin\startup
It says bad command or filename.

Can anyone pls help me with this?

If error exist. Try to run that by double clicking the CATALINA_HOME\bin\startup.bat

Info: You are trying to run tomcat 5.5.x, which is supposed to be for java tiger (jdk5.0.x), while you are using jdk1.4.2
