OK - so I was simply mislead by the terse "Service" (or whatever the checkbox 
was labeled with) to believe, that this would NOT install a service, if 
unchecked. Thanks for clarifing this!

BTW: how about separating this into TWO checkboxes, one labeled e.g. "register 
as service" and an indented "sub-checkbox" labeled "automatically start with 
the system", i.e. something like:

...
[ ] register as service
    [ ] automatically start this service when system boots.
...
Ideally, the indented checkbox would only be accessible, if the parent is 
deselected, i.e. grayed out, if the register is deselected.

And, in that latter case (i.e. if the user deselected the "register..." 
option) then install that startup.bat file to /bin instead. 

Or frankly, I don't really see, why one could not install that startup.bat 
*always*. If the user has stopped or disabled the service, but still wants to 
start tomcat temporarily by hand, (s)he could use that startup.bat.

At least *I* would find that very handy for testing! :-)
