           Summary: Tomcat always tries to install as service on Windows
           Product: Tomcat 5
           Version: 5.5.23
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: Unknown
        AssignedTo: tomcat-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: mmo@zurich.ibm.com


Hello,
for test reasons I had to install several versions of Tomcat (v6.0 and 5.5.23 
in this case). Doing so, I had to learn, that the Windows-Installer for Tomcat 
obviously ALWAYS tries to enter Tomcat as a system service, even if the 
corresponding checkbox in the config dialog has been UNchecked. This is a bit 
annoying, since 
1.) if another Tomcat version has already been installed before, then during 
the installation one gets an error, that entering Tomcat as a system service 
failed (=> abort/retry/ignore).
2.) during subsequent reboots one is now always pestered with an error message 
that a service(namely the one whose entry failed - see above) failed to start.

So, the Tomcat installer would either have to obey the check box and NOT enter 
the app as a service unless told so, 
OR
the *names* (and maybe further settings - don't know what's all required for 
the installation of a Windows Service) would need to be sufficiently distinct 
so that several installations could happily co-exist as different services. Of 
course, in that case, one would need to make sure that portnumbers (and 
probably misc. other settings, too) would have to be distinct, or that at any 
time only one of those installed services would actually be running, but 
that's another issue, that the user/admin would have to take care of.

Regards,
Michael
