    in step no 13, make sure you go to directory under glassfish\lib\ant\bin then type the command ant -f c:\glassfish\setup.xml

    (give it the full path where the setup.xml resides)

  2. @abbbb
    yes….that’s right. When I was doing it, it was ant preinstalled before.
    So, it’s trus that step 13 should be:
    ant -f c:\glassfish\setup.xml

    thanks for correction.
