Subject Re: Tomcat enables setlocal on Windows_NT and will not see setenv variables
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2008 17:37:49 GMT
Okay, I feel silly now.  I jus realized that XP returns Windows_NT from the
OS variable.  And my Tomcat install works fine in XP.  So it's apparently
something besides the setlocal.  Which leaves me back at square one.  :(

Any suggestions?
