Subject RE: Ant not respecting JAVA_HOME

another tip, it is not pretty. 
in windows when paths have spaces, you can try using windows short names

if you only have 1 dir that starts with "c:\Program"
then the short name for "Program Files" is "progra~1"

set JAVA_HOME="C:/progra~1/Java/jdk.1.6.0_23"
 

the "dir /x c:\" can give you the short name for all files at c:\

Subject: Re: Ant not respecting JAVA_HOME

The right syntax to include a value with spaces for batch files / cmd.exe is:
set "variable=value with spaces"
So, you should have used
set "JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk.1.6.0_23"

Not sure if this might help you original issue though. Did you try to comment the echo off
line (precede with "rem ") in ant.bat / ant.cmd under ANT_HOME/bin? Maybe, if you comment
that, you will see on the console what executable it is trying to run.

Hope this helps,
