Subject Re: Can't start Geronimo on Windows XP

What path is Geronimo installed under?
If you extracted it into C:\Program Files\ or under your home directory, 
then try extracting it to a shorter path without spaces, like 
C:\geronimo-tomcat6-javaee5\ instead.

Also, try verifying that the file you downloaded was not corrupted 
during transit, by using the MD5 files on our download site -

If the file was corrupted and you used a mirror site, try downloading 
directly from the Apache server -
