Before you tell me to just use Linux, let me say this is a downward-directed server upgrade. I have tried getting it to get it working several ways, using the 32-bit and 64-bit JVMs, replacing the binaries and moving around msvcr71.dll, but to no avail. Getting this error in the jakarta service log:

[2010-09-21 10:05:16] [985 prunsrv.c] [error] Failed creating java

Any help with this setup would be greatly appreciated!

It is hard to help, because it is not clear what exactly you did. Have you tried to search for your error? This looks similar http://smaier.net/programming/tomcat-60x-installation-issue-windows-server-2003-x64

I was able to resolve my issue. I had tried the 32 bit version first, but had not fully uninstalled it; I had to manually remove the old service as mentioned here:

Once I started fresh with the 64-bit JDK and the latest Windows Service Installer, everything worked fine. I had read about problems with the x64 versions of everything, but apparently those are outdated, since it seems the 64-bit versions work best for 2008 R2.

Thanks for the info.
