Hi, seems to me that Windows cannot find the command "fop", ie. the batch file fop.bat. Did you include the path where fop.bat resides in your %PATH% environment variable, or did you call it from the directory where fop.bat resides?
Otherwise, like Michiel Verhoef already mentioned, call the class org.apache.fop.apps.Fop directly with 'java org.apache.fop.apps.Fop -fo invoice3.fo -pdf invoice3.pdf', after setting the required libraries into the classpath.
