tomcat5.exe (or tomcat6.exe) *is* the service wrapper.
It is just renamed to tomcat5.exe or tomcat6.exe.

So you do not have to regenerate anything, you already have it.

Tomcat is a Java application.
It is run by the Java JVM.
In the Windows Service environment, the Java JVM is started by the wrapper (tomcatX.exe),

according to parameters preset in the Registry.
The wrapper tomcatX.exe is an executable Windows program, therefor it must match the type

of machine (32-bit or 64-bit).
