Yes indeed, this one boiled down to a cut-and-paste error when
populating JAVA_OPTS: should have, but didn't, included the leading
dash for "-server".

Original error, when trying to start as a service:
"The Apache Tomcat service terminated with service-specific error 0 (0x0)."
There was no logfile, no ports opened, no diagnostic text at all.

When trying to start from the command line, no text, no errors,
nothing, just instant quit.

JAVA_OPTS should have included "-server" but didn't: the initial dash
was missing ("server" without the leading "-").
