Glad you got it sorted.

For the record, I've seen this (and been very frustrated by it) before. It's to do with the
fact that your CLASSPATH ends in a "\" character. Somehow by wrapping the classpath in quotation
marks, the Ant script confuses the JVM which considers \" to be an escape sequence for a quotation
mark. Hence the call to java looks invalid and so you get the standard Java help message.

Anyhow, although it might not be recommended to run Ant with a CLASSPATH set, yours will work
if you just take that last "\" character off the end of it.

Hope this helps
Keith
