 From personal experience : it has not much to do with Windows 7 security, rather more 
with the slightly different way in which Windows 7 runs services, as compared to XP.
There will probably not be any error in the logs of Tomcat (apart maybe from an error 
related to the bad end of the process).  The errors will happen in the MS-Office software

itself, and will typically be of the types listed in the MS article earlier mentioned.
