Could you please change your display name to comply with JavaRanch's naming policy? (It's our only rule.) You can make the change quickly right here. Thanks, and welcome to JavaRanch!

According to this page at developer.java.sun.com, it looks like Windows XP isn't officially supported:
"System requirements are Windows NT 4.0 or Solaris 2.5.1+. Windows 2000 and Windows98 also are reported to work, but Sun does not yet officially support them."
Maybe someone over at the j2EE forum (perhaps a more appropriate place for this question?) has a trick up their sleeve for you.

The J2EE RI runs on XP "out of the box" for me. Check that you have the very latest JDK installed, and that you've set up J2EE_HOME and JAVA_HOME.
Anybody else have problems with XP?

I found the problem. Java does not like spaces in directory names ( program files ). I reinstalled the programs in non space directories and everything works fine now.
I would like to thank everyone for their input.

You can usually get it to work although you need to quote paths and so on. Glad that you got it working anyway.
Have fun!
