To get this running, I suggest you:
1) Download the .zip version of 6.0.20;
2) Unzip it somewhere safe;
3) Copy the missing .bat files to your second installation;
4) Carry on with what you were doing now that you have the files.

If you later want to install the second instance as a second service, you
can do that - but I'd get it running standalone first.  It's far easier to
debug startup errors on a standalone Tomcat, in my experience.
