I have installed java jdk and jre 5.5 and installed the apache tomcat,It is not able to start the tomcat server.
i am getting the following error when i tried to start tomcat from services
"Windows could not start the Apache Tomcat on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 0."
I had suuch issue with win 2003 R2 edition it is something to do with a dll which doesn't come along with server edition. Its available on XP copy that from an xp macine to your server that should solve the problem.
Actually i do not correctly remember the dll name it might be mstr.dll, iam not sure, i think googling the dll issue might help you out
subject: tomcat is not starting in the windows 2008 R2 environment
