Tomcat startup.bat error

I am running:

C:\>Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\bin\startup.bat
'Program' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

I suspect my envrionment setting is not correct. This is what I have for my local environment settings:
:
CATALINA_HOME
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\

CLASSPATH
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\common\lib\;C:\j2sdk1.4.2_01\bin

JAVA_HOME
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_01

PATH
C:\j2sdk1.4.2_01\bin

See the attached images for environment setting and file explorer showing additional information. System settings not available for me to edit.

Thank you

I will try to shut down and try http://localhost/8080 and then start up and do the same.

For your convenience, I suggest that you right-click on the startup.bat file and select "Create Shortcut". Move that shortcut onto your desktop and click on it when you want to start Tomcat.

If you don't like my first suggestion above here, then you can do it your way by using quotes around the path. The spaces are the problem.  
C:\>"Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.0\bin\startup.bat"

Open in new window

To all,

In fact startup.bat or shutdown.bat were not my problem. The issue was I couldn't run some jsp file typed directly from a book.

In order for me to figure this out (suspecting some environment variables are not correctly set up) I was checking startup.bat or shutdown.bat to see if they work or not. This was to gather evidences what works and what doesn't work.

Lastly, IT department were involved and did some changes to the system path (details not revealed to me). Finally my jsp files work and that is what mostly mattered to me.

This is a fine idea and I appreciate for sharing this. But it is a side issue.

Regards,

Mike
