I am having some issues with Tomcat . Not sure what's going on . It was working fine couple of days ago after reinstalling it. Now i don't even see it in my System Tray.
I can start it by going to Services and it does not give any error . But when i try to start it directly I get the error "Unable to start the servic tomcat5,5"

I was looking at the log files to see what the problem was and why i was getting "Error 404 , service not found" when deploying.
Earlier I Would get "Commons Daemon procrun stdout initialized" and INFO and the whole initialization proceess ,exceptions etc.

Now i just get the message " Commons Daemon procrun stdout initialized" and nothing else in the notepad.d

What exactly do they mean n how do i start making it work again and display on my system tray ? I am using windows 7 ,64 bit processor.
