Subject What happened to the Tomact 6 Monitor?
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2009 14:09:00 GMT

I have a Vista machine stoked with maximum memory. The following has
occurred each time I complete an install of Tomcat 6.0 followed by a reboot
of my computer.

I downloaded and successfully installed Tomcat6 setting the checkbox on the
component page that generaates during install that sets Tomcat to start
automatically with Windows . Each install resulted in a Tomcat icon placed
in the system tray at the lower right in Windows, which allows me to stop
and start Tomcat as needed.

Now, I reboot my machine.  When the machine gets to the Window desktop a
"red X" dialog box displays stating " Acess is denied.  Unable to open the
server 'Tomcat6'". I am repeating the message here letter for letter exactly
as it is shown in the dialogue box that pops up.  So I click "OK"

Now at the Windows desktop, the Tomcat Monitor icon is not in the system
tray.   In order to start Tomcat I have to click on Start -> All Progbrams
-> Apache Tomcat 6.0 -> Tomcat Manager.  This brings up the logon dialog and
then I am in the Tomcat manager panel.  However I cannot stop Tomcat since I
cannot open the Monitor, since the icon that existed in the system tray
after the install and before the reboot is not there anymore.

I have had this same behavior several times.

Can anybody tell me what I am missing? Do I need to set some property or
setting someplace in order to get the Tomcat Monitor be on the system tray
and available for my use at all times?

Thanks to all for your assistance.
