My quarter :
Yes, but I believe that the OP's confusion is due (again) to the fact that for Windows, 
there are two possibilities (the zip and the Service installer), and that the Service 
installer version does not contain all the same files as the zip version.

Considering the number of times this has come up on the list, I do not understand why the

people who make the Service installer don't just add the missing files in (tomcat)/bin and

bring this matter to rest once and for all.

Of course, then we'd still have to explain that the Service, once installed, does not use

the .bat files when running as a service.
