Are you sure JAVA_HOME is pointing to your 64bit Java install?

Also, you don't have the tcnative.dll in your tomcat/bin directory (or in your java/lib directory), do you?

Hello Ben

thanks for the reply

n other friendly forum
i recieve a suggestion of replace both .exe thor these ones

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/tomcat/connectors/trunk/procrun/bin/amd64/

see that is for 64bits

now i have this error (less of of course that the original)




some ideas? , where is the missing dll ???, the jre installer for 64 bits is wrong?

about your questions

Are you sure JAVA_HOME is pointing to your 64bit Java install?

yes of course, to my bin jdk java folder location


Also, you don't have the tcnative.dll in your tomcat/bin directory (or in your java/lib directory), do you?

no appear in java/lib (jdk-jre folders)
and worst in tomcat/bin

Are you trying to connect to an external web server?
If not, you shouldn't need any connectors.

If you are running Tomcat as a standalone there is an optional set of libraries called the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) which are written in C.
Tomcat uses JNI to connect to the APR.
This is why I was asking about the DLL.
If you're just trying to get Tomcat up and running for the first time, I would avoid using APR, at least until you've got it running as a pure Java app.
If you don't have APR on your machine, disregard my earlier comments.

This:
[2008-02-14 13:54:20] [986 prunsrv.c] [error] Failed creating java C:\java\jre1.5.0_12\bin\server\jvm.dll
makes me think that there is a 32 bit DLL or EXE somewhere in the equation.

How are you starting Tomcat?
From the bat files or from the start menu items (or Windows Service).
If it's either of the latter, try starting from the bat file.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
