I have problems to install the controller on Windows 7, i receive following error:
CATALINA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly
Thanks for help

I just downloaded the 2.0 release from Sourceforge and had no problems with Windows7.
I have a JDK installed to c:\jdk1.6.0_25 and the JAVA_HOME variable points to that folder.
The only difference I see is, that I start using openremote.bat.
I did not set any CATALINA variables. These are normally set automatically.
Just a hint. Philipe has JRE installed, just as I do. I had to set environment variable JRE_HOME to the path to get Openremote working.
I have try what Marcus and Zanstra says but the error is the same.
Can anybody try to resolve it for me, i have teamviewer installed.
Since you only start with "openremote run", could it be that you renamed openremote.bat into only openremote?
The program checks for the existens of "openremote.bat".
Please make sure your start script is named "openremote.bat".
I'm having the same problem. I'm running windows 7 64 bit. I can run tomcat from the command line, but when I try to install tomcat as a service, I get the same error. On the flip side, I can install tomcat from xampp or the installer and get tomcat to run as a service. When I copy the controller folder into webapps, I can access the page but I can't sync with my account. I get errors that say the path file doesn't exist.
Talk about frustrating. I checked and tested permissions, paths and configurations. I get the same result every time. I would list everything I have done, but I don't want to get cramps from typing so much.

@Everybody: Make sure you change into "Openremote/bin" folder and execute "openremote.bat run" in that folder.

the default configuration in the controller assumes, that the controller was started with the current directory beeing "tomcat/bin".
If you use a windows service it's most likely that the runtime directory is something else.
Try to change the "resource.path=..." setting in "tomcat/webapps/controller/WEB-INF/classes/config.properties" and assign an absolute value.
