Hi

I have Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate. I installed Apache Tomacat 6. I click Monitor Tomcat, then I get a popup with the following message:


Zugriff verweigert

Unable to open the service 'tomcat6'



How can I solve this problem? I can not start Apache Tomcat.

Kind regards, Urs

Tomcat can be installed either as a service or as an application.

Exactly what steps did you follow to install Tomcat?

For the non-Germans under us: "Zugriff verweigert" roughly means "Access denied".

Make sure that the user account used has sufficient privileges to run it. This is a problem at OS level, not at Tomcat level.

Hi

I downloaded Apache Tomcat 6.x. I chose Windows Service Installer.

How can I make sure that the user account used has sufficient privileges to run it? Me too I think it is a so called OS problem.

Kind regards, Urs
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
