Subject tomcat 5.x windows installer
Date Fri, 01 Oct 2004 09:50:19 GMT
I cannot get the latest windows installer .exe jakarta-tomcat-5.5.2.exe 
to install properly

It freezes after writing conf\server.xml and conf\tomcat-users.xml with 
the message "Using Jvm: C:\jdk1.5\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll" where that is 
where I've installed the jdk. It make no difference if I choose the 
installed jre instead of the jdk.

The most recent one I did get to work was 5.0.19. Both 5.0.27 and 5.0.28 
both freeze in the same way as 5.2.2

Seems to be same situation on win2k pro and win 2003 server.

Any one have any clues as to what the problem is and how I would get the 
.exe to install properly?

Thanks for any help,


PS's ...

BTW I'm on jdk1.4.2_03 on w2k, 1.5 beta on win 2003 server - both seem 
to behave the same.

The last few lines from the show details block read as follows
