I guess you whould have the same problems if you try Ant with JDK 1.4 Beta x
(or the RC if you can get hands on it).

4. Tell us if the suggested fix works for you so we can apply it.

In your case the problem is a little bit different. The line "Detected OS"
is directly taken from the Environment of the Java VM (the property
"". So this on is a "bug" in the VM, but it's not so problematic
since Ant just needs to know if the Windows you are using is "a kind of NT"
or not.

The Problem with the ".NET Server" seems to be that Ant doesn't recognize
that it's kind of NT and tries to execute which leeds to the
problem reported.
