I'm having a problem getting Tomcat 5.5x to run on Windows 7. I installed it in C:Tomcat
It installs fine and all...but the service won't start. When I look at the log it says:
Failed creating java C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin\client\jvm.dll
I set the permissions for the folder and file so it could have full access.
When I change the Startup tab to use Java instead of jvm I get this error:
Unable to find Java Runtime Environment.
Is there a work around? Any help is appreciated.
I don't mind running it from a cmd prompt if I knew how. That info would be good too if it's possible.
The reason I'm going with ver 5.5x is because I am studying for the SCJWCD.
Thanks in advance.

For study you really should be running Tomcat as an application rather than a service.
Download the zipped version (I recommend version 6 not 5) and expand it - should result in an application you can start with start.bat
I did go with ver 6. I am having JAVA_HOME problems. It is telling me that my JAVA_HOME needs to point to a JDK and not a JRE. It does point to a JDK...without the bin folder.
My version has a startup.bat in the bin directory.
