6.6 Avoiding "Out of environment space" errors on Windows 95/98

This error can easily occur since the default amount of environment space is
typically insufficient to run Tomcat.  Here are a couple of ways to avoid

  A. If you use the MS-DOS Prompt to start Tomcat, execute Programs ->
     MS-DOS Prompt.  Right-click the MS-DOS icon on the left of the title
     and select Properties at the bottom of the menu.  In the MS-DOS Prompt
     Properties dialog select the Memory tab.  In the "Initial environment:"
     field, set a sufficiently high number.  If you are not sure, 3072
     be plenty.  Click OK and close the MS-DOS Prompt window.  Execute
     Programs -> MS-DOS Prompt again, navigate to the directory where you
     installed Tomcat.  Set the JAVA_HOME environment variable if not set
     already.  You should be able to execute "bin\startup" and
     to start and stop Tomcat without getting an "Out of environment space"
