Subject New Ant User Needs Help With Win95 Install
Date Fri, 08 Mar 2002 19:56:07 GMT
I just downloaded Ant and started working through the installation instructions. I created
C:\Ant and moved the bin and lib directories into my new directory. Then I opened up my autoexec.bat
file and added the following lines:

set ANT_HOME=C:\Ant
set PATH=%PATH%;%ANT_HOME%\bin

Things didn't work out for me so I restarted my computer. Now when I try to run the command
ant, I get a Bad Command or Filename message. Then I went to C:\Ant\bin and tried to run ant.
I still got the Band Command or Filename message. When I try to execute the command runAnt,
I get a line with my current directory listing and then a Bad Command or Filename.

I have Java v1.3.0 installed on my machine and can execute java and javac from any directory.
I've triple checked the Ant installation instructions. When I echo my PATH and ANT_HOME, they
contain the correct locations. Am I losing my mind?
