I downloaded activiti-5.8.zip some days ago and played around with it a bit.

When I start the demo with "ant demo.start" in the setup directory, tomcat boots with following error:

01.12.2011 15:37:45 org.springframework.beans.factory.xml.XmlBeanDefinitionReader loadBeanDefinitions

The Activity Explorer works on the first glance. But nevertheless, how to fix it? The mentioned file applicationContext.xml is in place:
…\activiti-5.8\apps\apache-tomcat-6.0.32\webapps\activiti-explorer\WEB-INF.
I restarted the PC, the resource should not be captured by any other process…. Someone experienced it, too
???
