For this reason under Windows (7) I didn't set it at the beginning (neither did I install
it), so the error came: no JDK nor JRE was set (although JRE was set). I tried to set JDK_HOME

Tomcat with the startup.bat.

1. Do not top-post,

2. Be specific. What exact versions of everything? Does "version.bat"
work for you? What exact values you are using? What are messages that
are displayed on screen and in logs? Not only error message, but info
messages before it.

3. Once again - read this:
