Subject RE: Local administrative rights to start Tomcat 3.2 beta2?
Date Wed, 12 Jul 2000 13:03:28 GMT
Make a copy of the startup.bat file in the bin directory.  Modify this copy by changing the
"call" line near the bottom of the file to use "run" instead of "start".  Open a dos command
window and make the tomcat directory the current directory.  Then execute "bin\<your modified
bat file>".  With "run", Tomcat will be executed within the current command window instead
of spawning a separate process.  This should give you a better view of your error.
If an important part scrolls off the screen, right-click the icon in the upper left corner
of the command window and select Properties.  Set the Screen Buffer Size to a number of lines
sufficient to capture your error, then "OK" twice and try again.
Hope this helps.

I'm running NT 4.0 SP6a.

Tomcat 3.2beta2 is installed locally in e:\tomcat\... 
JDK 1.3 is installed in c:\jdk1.3\... 
JAVA_HOME and TOMCAT_HOME are also set (works with Tomcat 3.1).

What could be wrong?

It's too fast, but I think it's something like: 

exception in thread main .. java.lang. ... 

It's a little bit weired. 

Thank you,
