Did you download .exe install program and then run .exe to install Tomcat
7.0.28+, or did you download Tomcat 7.0.28+ .zip file and unzip the
contents to that tomcat folder on your C:\?

I ask, because there was a recent discussion about the Tomcat .exe, and I
think that discussion had findings that there was an issue in Tomcat's
Windows Registry key that is/was updated by the Tomcat .exe install program.

FYI, I don't use .exe... I only use .zip and unzip to my hard drive.
