I think that you should start with a real reproducible description of
the issue (in Bugzilla).

What JDK are you using, from what vendor, and what are the steps to
reproduce the issue.

1) Without a JDK the installer cannot really choose whether to install
32-bit or 64-bit binaries.
I think that we can default to 64-bit nowadays.

2) The JDK can be reconfigured later, via configuration manager
(tomcat9w.exe) or by editing the registry.

can always fix it afterwards (as long as CPU architecture is chosen
correctly and the correct binaries are installed).

>From my experience with installing the service with service.bat, the
environment variables are lost when a program runs with elevated
privileges. That is why service.bat was changed to pass all settings
as command line arguments when installing a service (calling
tomcat9[w].exe). You may find a reference to Bugzilla issue in the
commit history of the service.bat file.
