By default, none.

Hopefully that's what shows in the tomcat6w.exe program, not something you're setting in the
system environment variables.  (If you do have a CLASSPATH environment variable, get rid of
it - it will only break things.)

Don't bother, the JVM is already looking there, as shown by the INFO message.

No, it won't break anything, but it's also not going to make it work.  The java.library.path
is used for native library DLLs only, not for classes.

Check for ownership and access permissions on the file - insure that the account the Tomcat
service is running under can access the DLL.

By any chance, is this a 64-bit version of Windows Server?  If so, and you're using a 64-bit
JVM, you'll need the 64-bit version of the DLL.
