Hello, I installed tomcat 6.0.16 on vista with the executable. When windows start tomcat will try and start the service, but it errors out. The only way I can start the service is by opening the configure tomcat, and right clicking and selecting run as administrator. Then I am able to stop and start the service. Is there any way I can start tomcat without having to do the run as administrator?

You might try enabling the User Account control off on your system.
You can find it here
Control Panel---------> User Accounts ------> Turn User account on or off
I think this should help, otherwise check the system event logs on your machine and paste it here so that we can have a look.
