You haven't given enough details.

If you're attempting to start Tomcat as a Windows Service, it can be difficult to debug. It's easier to try launching it in a command window.

Tomcat sets up its own classpaths. You should set the JAVA_HOME environment variable, however so that Tomcat knows which of your installed JVMs to run under.

When you start up Tomcat in a command window, it will print out a few items to let you know what environment settings you have in effect.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
