Hi there,
did you manage to find out what was the problem? I have the same problem with Windows 2000. I had installed this version of Tomcat successfully on the same pc before but now suddenly it doesn't want to do it anymore. My mistake was maybe to restart my machine. It triggered a windows update and maybe that's what is stopping the full install, although I am not sure.
Bizarre.
Cheers,

Jeff

Are you sure that both Java 5 and Tomcat 5.5.12 support Windows 98?

Hi,



1) Are you logged into your Win98 with an account that has all the privelages? meaning that is an admin or admin-like account?



2) Do you really need to have tomcat installed as a Windows Service? You could just start it from the command propmt everytime and it'll be perfectly ok!



3) As far as your installation of Java goes, is that the correct path? If so, do you have multiple JVMs installed on your system? Try trimming it down to just one JVM! But this point is not really all that important.



4) I remember (vaguely) that certain applications cannot work purely off the JVM because thay also need the Java compiler...could you try pointing to your JAVA SDK home rather than the JVM and see if that makes any difference at all? I think that it will ask you for the path during the installation if I'm correct.



5) If all else fails...screw the installer. Download the zipped version (http://apache.intissite.com/tomcat/tomcat-5/v5.5.12/bin/apache-tomcat-5.5.12.zip) and just unzip it in the location where you want to run it from. Set JAVA_HOME as an env. system variable and start up tomcat by running startup.bat from the command prompt. Let's say TOMCAT_HOME is where you unzipped everything...then this file will be located in TOMCAT_HOME/bin/ directory.



I hope this helps.
