Subject Re: Tomcat startup problem
Date Tue, 18 Sep 2001 12:56:44 GMT
 I discovered that the environmental variable %OS% is set to 'WINNT' on my
Win2000 PC.  The Tomcat.bat script is looking for %OS% ='windows_NT' so it
bypassed any NT specific settings.  I still have other errors to deal with but
at least I am past this problem.

Thanks for everyone's help.
