Windows 95, 98, or Me
If you're using Windows 95, 98, or Me, set environmentals in your autoexec.bat file.
C:\autoexec.bat

Windows NT, 2000, or XP
If you're using Windows NT, 2000, or XP, set environmentals using Control Panel/System/Environment.

Hope this helps
Brian

Hi!

Thanks Brian and Peter, for giving me some time.
Peter we can not get environment variables as you suggest in windows me we can get in xp but not in me. I think Brian is right but I had tried to set environment variables path and classpath on autoexec.bat file but it still not working at command prompt when i used javac command it shows that bad command or file name.
In the bat file i had set variables as SET PATH=C:\jdk1.3\bin; and CLASSPATH=C:\jdk1.3\lib;
please help me how to set these variables on WINDOWS ME.

Thanks & Regards,
Vivek Mishra

The "advanced" tab has been removed from My Computer -> Properties in Windows ME. What a great idea.

So, to set environment variables, you need to:
- Go to Start -> Run
- Enter "msconfig" (starts "System Configuration Utility")
- Click "environment" tab
- Click "new"
- Enter your JAVA_HOME, CATALINA_HOME or whatever variable names/values
- select the new variable's checkbox, apply, and restart computer.
- Hoorah! It works.
(I've just done the above, and got java and tomcat working fine.)

Good luck!
