```Attached is a little utility I have had for quite a while and may help. It
is a version of the which program found on many Unix systems that runs in
Windows. Place this file in a directory that is pointed to by your path
setting, open the command window where you would normally run ant, type
which ant. It should show you the first any executable that will be run if
you enter the ant command. In a normal installation of ant this should be
ant.bat. It will also show the path to the executable.

I have taken ant bin path out of the path variable one moment ago, so it is
not listed in the set output.
