Initially I used startup.bat but the console window closed before I could even see the stack trace. The logs folder does not contain any files for inspection. Subseqeuently I switched to invoking tomcat with the following command,
This enabled me to run tomcat within the same window and examine the stack trace, part of which I included within the original post.
I have run this version of tomcat before, albeit on a different machine (similar spec). I'm puzzled as to why I'm having problems. Installation's never been an issue before. regards, Mo
You can change the last executable line in startup.bat to say:
call "%EXECUTABLE%" run %CMD_LINE_ARGS% instead of call "%EXECUTABLE%" start %CMD_LINE_ARGS%
This will let startup.bat do its thing with the environment variables AND leave the window open so you can see why tomcat dies.
That FileNotFoundException message points to a messed up environment variable somehow. You can modify catalina.bat to echo the environment variables before it tries to start Tomcat. Bill [ February 10, 2007: Message edited by: William Brogden ]
