I downloaded the zip file, followed the instructions, and startup.bat 
gave the following in stdout

Using CATALINA_BASE:   C:\Program Files\Apache Software 
Using CATALINA_HOME:   C:\Program Files\Apache Software 
Using CATALINA_TMPDIR: C:\Program Files\Apache Software 
Using JRE_HOME:        C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_02

but the web server was not running.  Another shell window did open, 
but it closed right away.

There is no other TCP service using port 8080, but there is an Apache 
2.2 web server using port 80.
