Installing Tomcat 6 (64 bit) on Windows Server 2008 R2.
posted 6 years ago
First, let me say this is my first time using Code Ranch and it's forum. I'm new to the 64 bit world and not great at Tomcat, so please bear with me.
I'm trying to get Tomcat 6 running in 64 bit mode on a Windows server 2008 R2 64 bit machine. When I install it, it seems to install in 32 bit mode.
I tried using google to get help and I got it working but not in 64 bit mode. Basically, I copied the tomcat6.exe (64 bit executable) and tomcat6w.exe into the directory where it was installed. The problem is that Tomcat installed in the 32 bit directory. I couldn't get Tomcat 6 to start until I copied "msvcr71.dll" from the System32 directory into the SysWOW64 directory. It then finally started the service.
Is there anyone out there that can give me advice?
