I get this error after start-up or when i click tomcat exe's :

Access is denied
Unable to open the service 'Tomcat7'

And the icon NEVER appears on the taskbar except immediately after installation. How can i resolve this ?
I use jdk 1.6, tomcat 7 on windows 7 64bit home.

I am currently using "head first servlets & jsp" (ok). Can anyone please recommend other books for beginners ? how are "murachs" and "deitels - advanced java".
All suggestions are welcome.

In the future, it's best to keep to one question per topic.

Hi Rahul,

I don't get it, how can you get this message after you start-up?

You have to keep in mind that Tomcat as a web-server isn't like a program that open a windows while executing and have a GUI, he is a service and run in the background, you put your web application at the properly folder (under webapps, that is inside the Tomcat folder) and starts it, so if you acces in a browser like IE or Firefox at local host slash context name port 8080 you'll see your web application running.

After you start the tomcat you can see if it's running properly accessing him from a browser in http://localhost:8080/, it will return you a tomcat default page/admin panel.

And about the books to study i think that there is no better book to learn from zero Servlets and JSP's that "head first servlets & jsp", if you're not understanding something about the content you should consider to study some J2SE concepts better before run to this.
