Try to point to your JDK, not JRE.
Moreover, check your system variables. JAVA_HOME which points to your JDK root folder and CATALINA_HOME which points to your tomcat root folder, should be there.

Right Click My Computer and go to System properties then to Environmetal Variables
In that Set user Variables option Click New

It will ask two empty text box:

User Name:

Variable value:

Variable name:JAVA_HOME

Variable value :\jdk1.4(Whatever drive you installed and whatever folder name you specified).

After installing java only you should install Tomcat be sure with it

the error is related to that only

Well, it was all capital letters, I'm not sure this is valid

Moving this to our Tomcat forum...
