It's not going to do you any good to keep asking the same question over and over. We're unpaid volunteers, here, not a 24x7 hotline. http://www.coderanch.com/how-to/java/PatienceIsAVirtue

I went and locked your duplicate questions so that all the answers will show up in one place (this thread) and people won't get confused. Unfortunately, I can't offer an answer myself, since I don't run critical Internet services on Windows. About the most I can say is that in the Tomcat downloads, there are versions of Tomcat for general use and then there are special versions that contain additional stuff that can wrap Tomcat up and operate it as a Windows Service, so you should confirm that you have the right download for what you want.

As I recall, for best results on 64-bit Windows 7, you should download and install 64-bit Tomcat and you do have to install it as an administrator, not as a regular user.

I've installed Tomcat successfully as a service by installing and running the Tomcat Windows Service Installer. You will need a 64-bit JRE as well though.

How to install it using a different installer is something I can't help you with though.

Tomcat windows installer will help you, you can easily install it using this type of download.

but no idea about the Izpack, tomcat will work properly in the above mentioned way, and it will also come with a system tray icon for you to help with start,stop and change he port numbers.
