Add the apache-ant-xxx\bin directory to your path.Download and install a Java JDK and point the JAVA_HOME environment variable to its root directory. An error message that reads "Unable to locate tools.jar. Expected to find it in C:\Program Files\Java\jre6\lib\tools.jar" means you need to set JAVA_HOME to your JDK (not JRE) installation.
