Hello,

I got machine with Tomcat 5.0 already installed by previous user of the machine.
Everytime I startup the machine, tomcat starts as service.
I want to start up tomcat only when I need it and not on machine startup.
Are ther any settings which I need to alter for this to take effect?
Please suggest.

All of your Windows services can be controlled from the "services" windows.
Control Panel -> Administration -> Services.
Right click on "Apache Tomcat" and you will have options to change startup from automatic to manual.

Thanks Ben,

But I was surprised to see that StartUp Type for Apache Tomcat service is manual and not automatic.

Maybe someone else changed this on your server.
It installs with a default value of "automatic".

Hello Ben,

Problem is solved. Thanks to my friend.
Removed shortcut for Start Tomcat from
<Drive>\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

now I felt, it was sheer common sense which I forgot, I do have.
