I am attempting to install JBoss 4.2.2 GA under Windows Server 2003, with the latest service packs. The box currently has IIS 6.0 installed, and is serving a website at port 80. ASP .NET 1.1 is installed on this box as well.

I am following the instructions in the JBoss Installation guide. I installed the JDK using jdk-1_5_0_15-windows-i586-p.exe, downloaded from the Sun Java site. After installing Java, I unzipped the JBoss installation file, and copied everything into

c:\Program Files\jboss-4.2.2

I added an environment variable JAVA_HOME, and pointed it to:

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_15

I also added this to the PATH:

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_15\jre\bin

I opened a Command Prompt window, changed directories to:

C:\Program Files\jboss-4.2.2\bin

and executed run.bat.

The following message/errors appeared:

  JBoss Bootstrap Environment

  JBOSS_HOME: C:\Program Files\jboss-4.2.2

  JAVA: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_15\bin\java

  JAVA_OPTS:  -Dprogram.name=run.bat -server -Xms128m -Xmx512m -Dsun.rmi.dgc.cli
ent.gcInterval=3600000 -Dsun.rmi.dgc.server.gcInterval=3600000

  CLASSPATH: C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_15\lib\tools.jar;C:\Program Files\jb


Failed to boot JBoss:

        at org.jboss.Main$1.run(Main.java:508)
        at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:595)

I'm assuming I did something silly or overlooked something. Can anyone provide some direction on how to fix this?
