Memory Profiling Tomcat Running as Service

Does anyone have any good experiences running a memory profiler with Tomcat running as a Windows Service.

We have a memory (leak) problem in production and are unable to reproduce it in our development environment.

I've tried a few profilers my latest being yourkit java profiler. They seem to run fine by adding the profiler agent as a jvm options in the batch file and running tomcat from there.
However, when I try it with a Tomcat installed as a service by adding the jvm option to the registry and restarting tomcat it seems to fail and I don't get an error messages in the log, so I have no idea how to fix it.

Help is appreciated.

Hm, why couldn't you run your Tomcat as simple application (not as service) and profile? Anyway running Java applications as Windows services isn't a very good idea.

Where did you get that idea? People do it all the time. I have a Win2003 server running IIS and Tomcat as a service for months with no trouble.
