i have installed jdk 6 and tomcat 6.
after windows is started, tomcat's is available in system tray.
but the service is not started.i tried to start that service manually.but it is not started... how to solve this problem... please help... thank you.
Go to your jdk folder then /bin:
like this for example:
there is a dll file named msvcr71.dll
copy it and paste it under tomcatfolder/bin
and then your server should start normally.
Basically this problem occurs during the installation of Tomcat on vista because there is that stupid security that does not allow tomcat installer to access that file.
So the solution is to do it manually after you finish the installation.
It is not the vista security that is stupid, it is the implementation.
If you are on a Linux operating system which is ,I suppose, way more secure than any of Microsoft's , you cannot face such issues.
Being able to do a process and only one part of it it is not allowed which will lead to malfunctioning of the whole scenario.
