Make sure that the account your tomcat service runs under (propably SYSTEM) 
has the appropriate permissions on the tomcat installation directories. 
Especially it must be granted writing permissions to the directories where 
tomcat puts the files created during JSP compilation (i. e. 
%CATALINA_BASE%\work by default).
