I have had no problems running any version of Tomcat on XP Home. Are you using XP Pro? Maybe you have a conflict with IIS?

I'm running Tomcat 3.2.3 and 4.1.12 on Windows XP without any problems.
What kind of problems are you having?

Hi,
jdk1.4 and tomcat need to be in the same directory? Or they could be in different directories. Setting the CATALINA_HOME to the tomcat directory properly gives me an error saying CATALINA-HOME variable is not properly set.
What might be the reason ?
Pls reply
Thanks

The tomcat and jdk1.4 do not need to be in same directory. All you to have to do is set the JAVA_HOME to C:\jdk1.4 directory and add a path to C:\jdk1.4\bin to your "path".
you can do this at every command prompt were you start tomcat or you do this in your PC as a globalsetting under "Environmental varibles"
Find the "System" under control panel and double click it,go to "Advanced user" tab and then "Environment variable"
