  CATALINA_HOME - c:\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.14\
  TOMCAT_HOME  - c:\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.14\

  classpath - c:\j2sdk_nb\j2sdk1.4.2\bin;

Check if tomcat didn't inslalled itself as a system service - it may be running already..

Hi!

1. Just for your info: there are no classes in the bin directory. So your classpath variable is not set correctly. But still it hardly affects the tomcat server startup...
2. afaik Tomcat can be launched as NT service, so check your Serivices list and if necessary set the Tomcat server to start automatically.
3. Try changing to bin directory and launching "startup.bat". Generally it works fine. Watch the console, there is pretty much useful info sometimes...
4. To check if your server is running launch any brouser and type "http://localhost:8080". Port 8080 is set by default.

Regards!

Following on from vk33's comments:

JAVA_HOME shouldn't have the "bin" on the end.

Your startup line should be: c:\jakarta-tomcat-5.0.14\bin\startup.bat

If you installed Tomcat as an administrator, but you're trying to start it as a normal user, you may be having problems with the privileges.
