Message I've gotten it working. Thanks go to Dale Anson for his help.

I've discovered two issues. My first problem was caused by a space
in the path to my Ant installation. Moving it from my home directory
to c:/apache-ant/ fixed it.

The second was a bit trickier. I have the latest versions of Antelope
and CodeAid installed. When I trigger a popup in CodeAid I start typing
the name of the method I want to expand. On the second keystroke (not
sure why it doesn't happen on the first) the console will open and
steal the focus, forcing me to click back with the mouse. If I continue
typeing it happens again, effectively rendering CodeAid useless.

After some code hacking I discovered it's two things. First, CodeAid
prints debugging output to the console as it works, so a new line is
printed for each keystroke. Secondly, Antelope seems to listen for
events and shows the console whenever an event occurs.

Commenting out line 73 of the ConsolePluginHandler class

         // bring the console to the front
         //showConsole( );

fixes it. I don't know if this will break something else though.

With that change CodeAide and Antelope play together just fine
and I haven't noticed any adverse effects.
Thanks for your help guys.
