Your classpath should not have %JAVA_HOME%/lib/tools.jar, in fact your
classpath is best left empty.

Repeating my original questions from my 1st reply:

Can you please confirm the following: 
JAVA_HOME is set?
%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar exists?
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\javac.exe exists?

Please provide some more details:

Value of %JAVA_HOME%
Version of Ant, 
Value of %ANT_HOME%
if you are running Ant 1.5.1 or greater, the output from 
'ant -diagnostics' would be useful as well.
The <javac> target from your build file.
