Hello Miguel,

Did you install Tomcat to a path with spaces in it?  That could be a
problem.  If so, you can solve it by using tilde (~) characters to
remove the spaces from the path to Catalina.  For instance, here is my


Also, did you use the installer?  Try using just the .zip file, set
all your environment variables, and then install your service by
copying the following to a command line (opened *after* all
environment vairables have been set):

%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\tomcat.exe -install Apache-Catalina %JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll
-Djava.class.path=%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\bootstrap.jar;%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar -Dcatalina.home=%CATALINA_HOME%
%CATALINA_OPTS% -Xrs -start org.apache.catalina.startup.BootstrapService -params start -stop
org.apache.catalina.startup.BootstrapService -params stop -out %CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stdout.log
-err %CATALINA_HOME%\logs\stderr.log

Make sure to set CATALINA_OPTS before you do this.  Mine is...

CATALINA_OPTS=-server -Xms8m -Xmx128m

Uninstall the service like this...

%CATALINA_HOME%\bin\tomcat.exe -uninstall Apache-Catalina
