Brian, dont know...
Its a file called
and it normally lives in the TC bin...

But you dont have to think if your use the tomcat.exe installer... it does 
it for you if you just select the native option... click ;)
What I do is get the zip version as well, and after the EXE has done its 
thing, I copy the missing bin scripts from zip to exe version.

have fun...
