------- Additional Comments From fabio.grassi@generalisi.it  2007-02-10 04:34 -------
I investigated further using Filemon as cleverly suggested by Christophe and
found that Tomcat5.exe was unable to load msvcrt71.dll.

On that machine that particular dll was not present in any of the directories on
the search path. In fact it was present in JAVA_HOME\bin which is not added to
the path by default. I added JAVA_HOME\bin to Path env variable and now
everything works fine (although I had to reboot the server in order to have the
search path modified, merely modifying the Path env variable was not enough).

On the other machine where Tomcat service worked from the beginning with jdk1.6,
it turned out that msvcr71.dll had already been installed by software other than
the JDK in directories different from JAVA_HOME\bin and that one of those many
copies was the one to be loaded.

Whether this is a Tomcat bug, a JDK bug, a Windows bug or no bug at all I don't
 know, but I think other people will hit it particularly if msvcr71.dll is not
installed by default by at least some Windows versions, so I reopen this issue
in order for it to be further scrutinized.

Ciao, FG.
