a. Type in the url "http://localhost:8080/", error message "The connection was refused when attempting to connect to contact localhost:8080" in the browser.
b. Double clicked "startup.bat" under c:\Tomcat\bin and I got the following error message:
------------------------- Out of environment space Out of environment space Using CATALINA_BASE: Using CATALINA_HOME: C:\Tomcat Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: Using JAVA_HOME: C:\j2sdk1.4.2_09 Out of environment space Out of environment space Out of environment space Bad command or file name -------------------------
I then added the line "shell=c:\command.com /E:4096 /P" to c:\config.sys file (it was empty when I opened this file and I added this line). Tried to run (double clicked) "startup.bat" under c:\Tomcat\bin and I got the same error message (b) as above.
I am installing on Win ME, is it a Win ME problem? Any pointers/suggestions to get Tomcat up and running on Win ME?
