Subject Re: unable to start Tomcat through the Windows Services panel
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 18:24:17 GMT
I tried changing the logon setup to use my ID and password but it did not
make a difference.

How do I get to the "System Event Log" in Windows 7?

Thank you

See Mark's previous answer.

In a nutshell :

When you run Tomcat via STARTUP.BAT in a command window, Tomcat starts up :
- under your own logged-in user-id
- using the parameters present in the various BAT files present in
Tomcat/bin

When you run Tomcat as a Service, it starts up :
- under whatever user-id the Service is configured to run under
- using parameters in the Registry (it does not use the BAT files at all)
(The Registry parameters can be edited via the GUI editor tomcat7w.exe,
also in Tomcat/bin)
