Did anyone successfully run Tomcat 6 on Windows7? I have a manual installation of tomcat which starts successfully but the deployed webapp does not open. It shows 'The requested resource is not available'. The logs don't show anything. The webapp works with same environment on winxp.

Win7 and Tomcat6 are both 64-bit installations.

Here is the output of tomcat properties:

Java settings:

Please let me know if anyone was able to resolve it.

The Tomcat log usually says that the webapp was deployed. Did it? Can you display the default web page?
