Try to point to your JDK, not JRE.
Moreover, check your system variables. JAVA_HOME which points to your JDK root folder and CATALINA_HOME which points to your tomcat root folder, should be there.

Right Click My Computer and go to System properties then to Environmetal Variables
In that Set user Variables option Click New

It will ask two empty text box:

User Name:

Variable value:

Variable name:JAVA_HOME

Variable value :\jdk1.4(Whatever drive you installed and whatever folder name you specified).


After installing java only you should install Tomcat be sure with it

the error is related to that only

"arun",
Welcome to the JavaRanch.

We're a friendly group, but we do require members to have valid display names.

Display names must be two words: your first name, a space, then your last name. Fictitious names are not allowed.

Please edit your profile and correct your display name since accounts with display names get deleted.

It appears your display name was originaly valid and you have changed it. Please change it back or your account will be deleted.

thanks,
Dave
