Yep, I tried exactly that, but couldn´t get it running :-(

Hmm, I know that there´s the "Monitor Tomcat" tray icon program that
ships with tomcat since 5.0.x ....
There´s a configure option to have tomcat running as a special user
and not as SYSTEM. The user I had choosen for that belongs to the
administrator´s group.
I have already done this and it worked. ASFAIK the credentials put in
there are just passed to procrun. So it should work that way.

I used JDK 1.4_02 -> 1.5.x on Windows XP Professional with tomcat
5.0.28, 5.5.4 or 5.5.7 - don´t remember exactly.

Do you see some tomcat-related entries in the system´s event log?

Maybe you´re encountering the same or a similar problem that I was 
running into!?!

kind regards
