Subject Tomcat 5.5 and x64 Windows
Date Thu, 18 Jan 2007 13:02:04 GMT
Hi Everyone,


I'm currently testing Tomcat 5.5.20 with SUN JVM on a Windows
2003 Server x64 platform.


Everything has installed fine but when I attempt to start Tomcat I get a
service error.


Trawling the Net I see that this is a common problem that is resolved
either by using a service wrapper, compiling Tomcat or using
pre-compiled binaries of some components.


I have been down the latter path and located some pre-compiled 64-bit
binary versions of tomcat5.exe, tomcat5w.exe and tc-native.dll (version
1.1.8) - all supposedly built for my particular x64 environment.


Is it a simple case of replacing said binaries in the current
installation of Tomcat?  I have tried this and get a "application
configuration is incorrect" error - e.g. for tomcat5w.exe


Can anybody please point me in the right direction?  What is best
practice for getting Tomcat up and running in my environment?


Thanks in advance,


Darren Kukulka
