  By default, the Tomcat Windows Service installer attempts to place Tomcat inside the "Program
Files" folder.  Default Vista folder permissions conflict with the contents of the "webapps"
folder, can case a blank page to come up when attempting to access the webapp.  By using a
HTTP Header inspector like "[ Live HTTP
Headers]" you can see a slightly more descriptive error message.  It is best to change Tomcat's
install folder to something like "C:\Tomcat".  This issue can be hard to spot because by default
the example webapps work just fine.
