There's no startup.bat for the Windows Service Installer. To start Tomcat, go to Start/Programs/Apache Tomcat 5.5 and select "Monitor Tomcat". A new icon will appear in your task tray. Right-click it and select "Start Service".

If you want to use Tomcat with startup.bat/shutdown.bat, you need to download the zip or tar.gz archive.
