I have Tomcat5 installed on my system,but not very comfortable with environment variable settings.I am trying to start tomcat server i.e c:\tomcat5\jakarta-tomcat-5.5.9\bin>startup
but I get following error:

The system cannot find the file -Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassloaderManager

Any suggestions!

Your JAVA_HOME is not set correctly, Set it to the location where your java is installed.

I doubt that is the problem since Tomcat is at least starting.

I am runing 5.5.9 but ClassloaderManager is not used anywhere.

I do have the following in catalina.bat

What has been modified from the original install of Tomcat5.5.9? Did somebody fiddle with catalina.bat?

ClassLoaderLogManager lives in the tomcat-juli.jar found in ..\bin of your tomcat home directory. If it is not being found then I suspect you need to set the environment variable CATALINA_HOME.
