Of course ! I missed that. Thanks, Konstantin.


To start the Tomcat Service, from a command window, you should be able 
to run this command :

C:\apache-tomcat-6.0.20\bin\tomcat6.exe //RS//Tomcat6

This same command should be what you see in the tomcat6w GUI, in the 
"General" tab, under "Path to executable".
If it does not look like that, then we have made a mistake earlier and 
need to correct it.
