I want to install Apache-Tomcat on my windows XP.
I have downloaded zip file from
I have extracted files from this zip file into Program Files.
Now how do I install this Apache-Tomcat ? I have used Windows Service Installer. When I download Windows Service Installer, does Apache-Tomcat get downloaded with this installer or do I still need to download zip files for Apache-Tomcat ?
I got this question because size of Apache-Tomcat is 7 mb, while that of windows service installer is 9 mb. Because of the larger size of installer, I feel Apache-Tomcat software is included in the installer. Or the Apache-Tomcat software size is smaller because of it being a zip file ?

How can I check whether Apache-Tomcat is installed on my computer or not ? If I just download the software and not install it, it wont show in the services. But if this software is installed, it will show in the services. Is that the way I can check whether Apache-Tomcat is installed or not ?
I agree. Here's the link:
