I am installing tomcat on my Windows XP Pro Box with IIS. When I get to the part where it says path to JVM.dll when I enter the folder it says no java virtual machine found. It is there I have found it in c:\j2re1.4.1_01\bin\client\jvm.dll. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Tomcat is going to want a Java SDK, not a JRE, because it needs the compiler to compile JavaServer Pages. Perhaps that is what it doesn't like?

I found that when I was installing, my JAVA_HOME environment variable was set to the folder containing the java.exe AND the javac.exe. While running the Tomcat 5.0 installation this folder path would autofill the setup form for me, but it would close with the "No Java Virtual Machine Found" message. I had to point the setup to a folder one level up from C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk\bin (i.e. the path where my environment variable JAVA_HOME points to) to the folder C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk . I wonder if this is what was happening to your installation of Tomcat?

Hi Ninea,


While running the Tomcat 5.0 installation this folder path would autofill the setup form for me, but it would close with the "No Java Virtual Machine Found" message.



When you said "autofill the setup", I just wonder, did you use the tomcat executable version, i.e. not the zip version, to install?

I used the tomcat.zip to install. After installation, I set the following environment variables manually.
CATALINA_HOME = c:\tomcat-5.0.28
JAVA_HOME = c:\jdk1.5.0
