a) edit service.bat and change the PR_CLASSPATH to include your stuff then type service remove
followed by service install.
b) run tomcat5w.exe //ES//tomcat, go to the java tab and edit the Java Classpath.

restart tomcat and it should work.

Best regards

Subject: problem on running tomcat as windows services


I would like to ask about my observation on Tomcat run on different ways. 
First, I run Tomcat on the command-line. I encountered no errors and I can access my webapp

Then, I try to re-run Tomcat as Windows service. I execute the ff command:

C:\Tomcat\bin>NET START Tomcat5
The Apache Tomcat service is starting.
The Apache Tomcat service was started successfully.

Then I access the url of my webapp. I got HTTP Status 500- error, saying:
javax.servlet.ServletException: javax.xml.transform.TransformerException: javax.xml.transform.TransformerException:
Unable to find file: shared/header.xsl

My xsl files were located at TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/MyApp/xsl. 
I put this line on my setclasspath.bat:

set CLASSPATH=%JAVA_HOME%\lib\tools.jar
set CLASSPATH=%CLASSPATH%;%CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\MyApp\xsl;%CATALINA_HOME%\webapps\MyApp\xml

Basically, that's the only change I made on my Tomcat instance' config files, and it run successfully
when I'm runnin my Tomcat on the command-line.

Why is it that i got an HTTP error when I'm running the same webapp on Tomcat, which is started
as a Windows service?

Is there anything I have to set for me to run it as a Windows service, successfully?

I really need a reply. I'm getting confused.

Thanks a lot.
