Problem after moving Tomcat directory

I installd Tomcat 5.0.28 to use it with Eclipse 3.0.2 in conjunction with Sysdeo's plugin. I had a good setup running when I decided to move the Tomcat directory for a specific reason:

Old path: C:\Java-Tools\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28

New path: D:\Java-Tools\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.28

So I moved the directory, reset Tomcat's home directory in the Tomcat settings to d:...but when I start the server I get the following error:

Why is that? Which location did I miss? I tried to clean the projects and to look for the "C:\Java-Tools" string on the hard disk but the problem stays.

Did you try opening up a dos window and typing echo %catalina_home% at the command prompt to verify that the environment setting was changed globally?
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
