Right, I see that now : Services..Tomcat..Properties.. then the 3rd tab (on my German XP 
Workstation, that's called "Wiederherstellen").  You can set it to restart automatically 
after the 1st, 2d, and further failures.

It's still not the default setting for Tomcat however, so someone must have set it 
specifically to do that on Debbie's system.

   You have to use the real service console, not tomcat7w.exe, to change that setting.

Good to know also.
So Debbie might want to change that logfile's location, to avoid another mysterious 
failure the day that system gets upgraded or the application moved to a more recent server.
And maybe pass this on to the InetSoft people, in case they didn't know yet.
