Hi All,

I installed Tomcat 6.0 and after installation I tried to run tomcat6w.exe and it is terminated with an exception in the logs.



What could be the issue here ?

1. How did you install Tomcat? As a service or as an application?
2. How did you configure the various environment variables that Tomcat wants to see?

I have the same problem. Installed as service. This is totally weird. First Java 1.4 was installed with Tomcat 6 and it worked. Then Java 1.4 was removed and 1.6 was installed. Tomcat didn't work any more. So additionally installed the 1.4 again. Tomcat still refuses to start.
There are two changes I made:
1. Adjusted the JAVA_HOME environment variable
2. In tomcat6w.exe under JAVA adjusted the path to the jvm.dll in the JVM section.

What else do I have to to?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
