I have installed Tomcat 6.0.28 in my machine.
But when trying to start it, it is not being started.
A command window open for a fraction of second and then closed.
No log or error is written in log.
I have set up the JAVA_HOME, CATALINA_HOME, classpath and path variables.
But no result. Any help will be appriable.

Thanks in advance...

How do you start it? Is there a way you can issue the start command in a command prompt window so that error messages are left displayed when the start fails? Open a command prompt window and change directory to the folder with the start file.

To verify the environment variables are set, enter a command prompt window and enter the set command and make sure the paths are correct.

I run it from command prompt but still getting the same result i.e. no log or error message. Only the tomcat window open for a fraction of second and then disappears.

I have an older version of Tomcat and get this when I execute the startup.bat:

Including all jars in C:\Java\jakarta-tomcat-3.2.4\lib in your CLASSPATH.

I am trying to start tomcat using the startup.bat from %CATALINA_HOME%\bin.

I have an older version of Tomcat and get this when I execute the startup.bat:

Can you edit the startup.bat file and post its contents here.

Add a MORE at the end of the bat file to keep if open after it executes so you can see the screen.
I don't have a startup.bat file. Here's my shutdown.bat file:

@Rem stop the Tomcat server
java -jar bootstrap.jar stop
