I just get a "Could not start …" and "Error 1053: The service did not respond …".

Hi, Rune-

I ran into something similar a while back on, I believe, Server 2008 R2. 
I ended up uninstalling Tomcat and all JVMs, manually removing all 
traces of the JVMs from the registry, and then re-installing a single 
JVM followed by Tomcat.
