Subject Re: Service on Windows Server 2003
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2007 23:53:19 GMT
if using jdk6, make sure msvcr71.dll is in the path of jvm.dll. The 
easiest thing to do is to copy msvcr71.dll to the jre directory from the 
jdk directory like so:
copy %JDK_HOME%\bin\msvcr71.dll %JDK_HOME%\jre\bin\server\
