Subject Problems with running 64-bit Tomcat 6 as a Windows service
Date Thu, 04 Sep 2008 02:00:40 GMT

I am trying to get Tomcat 6.0.18 to run on my Win2k3 x64 edition server. I basically did the
same thing talked about here:
but it didn't work for me. I didn't use the service.bat install though. I installed the service
manually with the sc.exe command.

I am using the 64-bit 1.6.0_06 JDK.  I don't get any Windows errors, the service start process
just times out. My catalina and jakarta logs don't have anything useful. The logs seem to
indicate that Tomcat started up fine--only it didn't. 

When I start up Tomcat from the command line, it works fine. I did have to check the box in
tomcat6w.exe to allow the service to interact with the desktop to run it from the command
line though. That seemed a little weird. 

Anyone successful in running Tomcat 6 as a 64-bit service?
