Crystal,
If your only worried about the startup.bat script, don't.
The Windows service doesn't use it anyway.
What you want to do is make any changes you made in the script in the "Start->Apache Tomcat
7.0->Configure Tomcat" GUI interface, if needed.
If you made changes to the server.xml, etc. you should just be able to copy those to the new
install location.  Or if you want, you can do a manual merge into the new files.
As always, just make sure the file paths are correct.
Jeff
