Subject AW: installation problems on windows 98
Date Wed, 08 Aug 2001 21:45:15 GMT

that was a good hint!
I didn't had a space in my directory, but I used the from zip given
directory, that was C:\jakarta-ant-1.3 and after I changed it to simply
C:\ant, it works!

Thanks to all of you,
I'm now very happy :)

And if there are still problems it would maybe be easier to do the

1. edit %ANT_HOME%\bin\ant.bat and change the first line to read
    "REM @echo off"
    instead of
    "@echo off"
2. Run ant as follows
    "ant >ant.log"
3. Post ant.log (so we can see where the problem is)
