Subject Re: Problems starting Tomcat on windows 7 64bit.
Date Sat, 24 Jul 2010 02:04:55 GMT

Well this is the first time I've tried running tomcat on this system, so I am
using a vanilla install.

I have set JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME in my env vars, I'm not sure if they
should be there or not.
I have removed the CLASSPATH var.

Other than that I have tried 5.5, 6 and 7 fresh installs and am getting the
same errors on startup with each, and I have been trying to start it from
the command line.

Any other ideas?  When I get back to my desktop on monday I will try
resetting on my env vars and trying again, then if that fails add them one
by one.
