I would like to upgrade IdP from V2. I have installed Tomcat8.0.21 and
Shibboleth-identity-provider- on Windows Server 2012. I  have set
-Didp.home=C:/Program Files (x86)/Internet2/Shib2IdP according to
Shibboleth_Wiki but I get constantly following error:(Windows short name is
also not helping)

[ERROR] : org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoader: Context
initialization failed
org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanDefinitionStoreException: IOException
parsing XML document from ServletContext resource [/C:/Program]; nested
exception is Could not open ServletContext
resource [/C:/Program]

I would be very grateful if you help me in this matter.
