Guys, i really am pressed to get certification in SCWCD. I want to study the book by Kathy and Bates. That book tells me to use Tomcat. I downloaded Tomcat but i am unable to set it up for my use. I have Windows Vista Home Premium SP1. The User Account Control is also turned on. Upon restarting it shows an error, that unable to start tomcat service. i also tried the zipped distribution, that didnt help either. Can anyone please provide step by step instructions as to how to setup tomcat on Vista? Please guys i cant switch to XP as the drivers for XP are not available for my notebook model. I have the second edition of that book, i.e. i want to give the 1.5 exam.

Turn your Vista User Accout Control to OFF(Un Check).This will solve your issue.Even after this if the problem persist try starting the "Apache Tomcat" Service manualy from services.
