    Incomplete Installation

    Mirko Tikalsky Newbie

      Hello,

      I downloaded the jboss 4.0.1 version and installed it (I choose the default install operation).

      After some problems I got the server runing. My next step was to test the j2ee tutorial getting to work with jboss.
      When using ant to compile the sources I noticed that the client directory in the jboss directory doesn't exist.
      So I thought the installation process has not completed correctly.

      I tried to uninstall jboss (and wanted to reinstall it with the complete option)
      Now my problem is, that I get a NullPointerException when I try to uninstall or install it:

      The Same error occurs when I try to install jboss:

      Anyone has got an idea what is going wrong?
      Any advice is very appreciated.

      Thanx
