Subject FindClass org/apache/catalina/startup/Bootstrap failed
Date Wed, 03 Oct 2007 15:41:50 GMT
I downloaded and ran the Tomcat 6.0.14 Windows Service Installer.

When I try to start Tomcat from Control Panel -> Services, it does 
not start and I get the
following error message in jakarta_service_20071003.log:

[2007-10-03 11:31:39] [info] Procrun ( started

[2007-10-03 11:31:39] [info] Run service finished.
[2007-10-03 11:31:39] [info] Procrun finished.

The RUNNING.txt file says to use $CATALINA_HOME\bin\startup.bat,
however, there is no startup.bat in
C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 6.0\bin
or installed anywhere else on the whole file system (under C:)

The tomcat6.exe does not show a usage message which called with -h.

Running tomcat6.exe without any arguments does not seem to start the 
web server,
and calling it repeatedly throws an OutOfMemoryError.

I am using java version "1.6.0_02"
