Subject RE: NullPointerException error on the <property environment="myen v/> - SOLUTION
Date Mon, 09 Jun 2003 21:08:15 GMT
Hi All,

	I found the solution to this and I wanted to share it with the
group. 

	This version of ant 1.4.1 acts strange with xp.

	So in order to get it to work correctly on Windows XP, add the
following environment variable.

	Variable name = ANT_OPTS   with a value of    -Dos.name=Windows_NT


	Thanks.

Lee Thomas

Yes this helps, can you also tell which version of ant you are using ?
