I liked the way when a dos console window would start when starting Tomcat 4.x. But with Tomcat 5.0, it basically calls the tomcatw.exe application and an icon appears in the system tray (I'm using Windows XP home edition). Evertime I want to see system messages I have to look at the tomcat log file which is not as much convenient as having a console window showing the messages right away. One of the menu options in the system tray icon (if you left click on it) is console monitor but every time I click on that option I get the typical win xp error dialogue box that sends the error report to microsoft. Do I need to change some configuration option etc to be able to see the console monitor window? What's causing this error? Thanks.
