The binary versions you mentioned are the same ones I have already

2 questions;

- how do you install the Tomcat service manually?  I install Tomcat
using the binary download, i.e. apache-tomcat-5.5.20.exe which does not
give you the option of NOT installing the Tomcat service.
- I'm not sure what you mean by running the install.bat.  As mentioned I
install using the exe.

In case the service still doesn't work use install.bat script with amd64
because the standard install might get installed as WOW64.

Also replace tomcat5w.exe with:
