Stack trace from add server instance wizard.

If Tomcat 7.0.14 is installed by installer (either NetBeans installer or installer downloaded from, it is not possible register its instance to IDE and attached exception is always thrown. If I download zip distribution of Tomcat 7.0.14, it works.

sample test

For some reason code inside tomcat is throwing exception. The code is simple so it might be something in Windows preventing access. Please try to run the test:

java -cp TestTomcat.jar;C:\path\to\tomcat\lib\catalina.jar;C:\path\to\tomcat\lib\tomcat-coyote.jar testtomcat.TestTomcat

I know how to resolve CNFE, but there might be something wrong anyway.

I'm not able to reproduce in XP.

Fixed in web-main 8af5cd163906.

The root cause was usage of File.toURL().
