Hi All,

After installing Tomcat 4.1.36 when i executed the startup.bat file in the console, a window appeared and disappeared immediately.

The catalina_home is set properly, java_home is also set properly, but i'm not able to figure out the problem.

Please help me...Thanks in advance.

Please check the log files and you will come to know the error. The window disappears whenever there is an error while starting up the tomcat but the error would be logged in the logs.

If the logs dont reveal the problem, change the last code line in startup.bat from


so the next bat file will continue in the same window. It will stay open and you can read the cause.

I agree. Here's the link:
