Thanks for the pointers Mladen.

I carried out the steps you outlined, however the "service install"
command follows;

F:\Tomcat5\bin>service install
Installing the service 'Tomcat5' ...
Using CATALINA_HOME:    F:\Tomcat5
Using CATALINA_BASE:    F:\Tomcat5
Using JAVA_HOME:        C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_10
Using JVM:              auto
The system cannot execute the specified program.
Failed installing 'Tomcat5' service

I've made sure the tomcat5 service is completely removed by using
"sc \\servername delete tomcat5" but I receive the same message running
the "service install".

Should I be specifying any parameters for this?

.exe installer is 32 bit so it'll probably install as WOW64

Unistall the Tomcat.
download and unpack to <install dir>
of your choice.

put tomcat5.exe.amd64 as tomcat5.exe inside <install dir>\bin
put tomcat5w.exe.amd64 as tomcat5w.exe inside <install dir>\bin

open cmd.exe (be sure it's 64 bit so, 'Start->run-cmd')
cd to the <install dir>\bin
 > service install

That's is :)
