Subject: Java VM File Encoding on Windows

Greetings All,

Was wondering if somebody could help me change my file.encoding on
windows 2000.  Running SDK  1.4.1 and Tomcat 4.0.1 .... another
application (OpenCMS) is giving me the message below, but I have tried
setting a CATALINA_OPTS system variable (just like JAVA_HOME) as
specified (and to -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8) and restarting Tomcat without
luck. Tomcat seems to run fine btw, eg the examples all go ... 

Any suggestions would be greatly welcome :-)

Awesome, Z.

Error: the encoding of your Java VM is different from the OpenCms
  Java VM file encoding:Cp1252
  OpenCms encoding:ISO-8859-1
To continue the setup process: Change the encoding of your Java VM. To
do that you must modify the
file.encoding setting. Using Apache Tomcat, a different encoding can be
in the environment variable CATALINA_OPTS by the -D parameter e.g.:
CATALINA_OPTS=-Dfile.encoding=ISO-8859-1 "
