OpenEMM Installation Tomcat wont run from start.bat in openemm

Last Modified: 2015-12-11
Just wondering if there was an expert out there that can help me!?

After installing openemm I am unable to load tomcat from openemm's start.bat, I can however start tomcat from the tomcat \bin directory and load up the tomcat homepage on localhost:8080...

The error I get when running openemm is:

Dec 10, 2015 4:39:53 PM org.apache.catalina.startup.Bootstrap initClassLoaders
SEVERE: Class loader creation threw exception
java.io.IOException: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect

Tomcat version: apache-tomcat-6.0.44
JDK: jdk1.8.0_65
OpenEMM: 2015 R2-win32
Python: 27

I have these environment variables set-up:
CATALINA_HOME = "C:\apache-tomcat-6.0.44"
JAVA_HOME = "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_65"
JRE_HOME = "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_66"
