Tomcat 6 on Java 6 problems

So, I am flirting with the cutting edge this evening...and am not getting anywhere. On a fresh install of XP SP2, I installed Java 6 and then Tomcat 6--both onto my C partition with Tomcat running as a service with native support.

When trying to start up Tomcat I get the following error:



So, "maybe the Tomcat install grabbed the incorrect JVM", I thought so I switched it to the other two jvm.dll files present...one in C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0\jre\bin\client and the other in C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0\jre\bin\server ...but no luck!

I've been searching the net but have not found anything that seems to do the trick.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

tia,

Stu

Hi all,

OK, I have it working but have no idea 'why'. Basically I reinstalled it with variations on my original installation.

1) uninstall tomcat 6
2) install tomcat 6
  • with service (as before)
  • no native
  • explicately specificed the JDK's JRE (instead of default JRE)

  • When I look at the configuration after the install, it looks the same to me. Maybe it was the native stuff?

    Anyway, hope this helps someone.
