Subject Problem starting Tomcat Windows service
Date Tue, 10 Feb 2009 13:37:49 GMT

A colleague recently downloaded the Tomcat 5.5.27 "service installer" 
from the official Tomcat site and tried to install it on a Windows XP 
workstation. But considering that this is a 64-bit XP system, the Tomcat 
service refused to start.
(The installed Java is a Sun java 1.6.0 64-bit JDK or JRE).

Being an assiduous reader of this forum, I of course knew why, and 
following the usually excellent advice given here, I told him to 
de-install the service version, and instead download and install the zip 
version, and consequently install it as a service using the service.bat 
That part worked nicely.
However, when trying to start the service later on, something goes awry, 
and the service does not start.  The Windows Event logger is pretty 
useless, mentioning an error of type 0/0 or similar.
In the Tomcat logs directory however, I find the file 
jakarta_service.20090210, with the contents below.

Anyone have any idea what's wrong ?
(I have this suspicion that even with the zip version, I need to get the 
64-bit version of procrun somewhere else, yes ?)
