A second command prompt window??  I've never seen tomcat do such a
thing.  What did the main window show?  If left as is, can you access
tomcat via a browser?  Anything in catalina.out?  Anything in the event

If all that fails to produce anything, I highly recommend process
monitor to trace the what tomcat/jvm is trying to do and where it's failing:
