I have getting used to the Ant deployment tool and in the process something went wrong.  I get the following error

C:\dev\AntTest>ant
java.lang.InstantiationException: org.apache.tools.ant.Main
      at java.lang.Class.newInstance0(Class.java:293)
      at java.lang.Class.newInstance(Class.java:261)
      at org.apache.tools.ant.launch.Launcher.run(Launcher.java:195)
      at org.apache.tools.ant.launch.Launcher.main(Launcher.java:55)
C:\dev\AndTest>

I never used to get this error, what is goin on here.  I tried reinstalling and still get the error.

Hello,

There might be some path setting issues, have you read:

I haven't read it.  if the path is to a directory or traverses a directory with spaces in the name is that ok?  In otherwords should it be a problem if ANT is in C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\apache-ant-1.6.2
and that is part of the path, or does the path then need to be in quotations?

I've had problems using ant with spaces in the name.  You will have to quote all your paths.  I finally gave up and just moved ALL of my java stuff out of c:\program files into c:\java

Yeah, I would just put ant into a directory like,

c:\ant

And put java into a directory like,

c:\java

take care and beset of luck
