Did you install Tomcat from the .exe download or the .zip one?  You will need the 64-bit versions
of tomcat6.exe and tomcat6w.exe if you want to run Tomcat as a service.  I would recommend
running it from the command line using the startup.bat and shutdown.bat scripts (from the
.zip downloads) until you get the bugs worked out.  After that, get the 64-bit versions here:

Rename them, changing the 5 to 6.

Do the servlet and JSP examples that come with Tomcat work?  If so, and it's just your webapp
that's failing with the package does not exist error, then something is odd with your webapp.

It just struck me: this is a compilation message, not a run-time one.  You'll need to tell
javac (or whatever IDE you're using) where the servlet-api.jar is.
