Re: Cannot launch Ant??????

I had this same problem (as mentioned in one of the posts). I found that I had an old ant.jar file from a previous installation in the j2sdk1.5.0jrelibext folder which was confusing the ant-launcher. After removing this .jar file (which shouldn't have been placed in that folder to begin with) everything worked fine.
Note: since ant is a standalone program, it's references should be placed in the CLASSPATH and PATH environment variables and not put into the ext folder...
If this didn't solve your problem, let me know.
