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.
