That says it all right there.

You (and/or your user) have success.

your coworker (and/or her user (ID/acct/profile)) does not have success.

your coworker 'only' has success when she restarts windows server.

when restarting the windows server, the service must be configured to
'automatic', and a clean restart usually = clean (re)start of tomcat...I
would assume.

This answer[1] on stackoverflow may hint on a solution and/or cause of the
error that your coworker is experiencing.

I have tomcat 7.0.47 (via tomee+) running on Windows 2008 R2 64-bit with
jdk1.7.0_45, and I only login to the server with one user ID, and I use
tomcat7w.exe to start/stop service, manually, but service is configured to
start automatically when server is (re)started. The user ID that I always
use...was also responsible for adding tomcat/tomee as Windows service.

Who or what user (ID) usually has success start/stopping tomcat manually
via tomcat7w.exe or via Windows Services window/app?

Was your coworker able to start/stop tomcat in the past with no issues? if
so, what changed? new install of tomcat? new config of tomcat? different
user (ID) added tomcat as windows service? ...
