Tomcat7 ignoring all JVM settings I'm making

Hello all,

I'm running Tomcat7 as service on Windows 64 bit machine and it ignoring all JVM settings I'm making, whether in the Java tab of Tomcat7W.exe or JAVA_HOME and JRE_HOME environment variables.

Instead it is referencing another JDK I have on my system. I can see that from http://localhost/manager/status, and also when I start the program manually by clicking the Tomcat7.exe - the startup log in the command box shows me it's referencing another jdk.

But I have no clue where Tomcat is getting that setting from and how to change it.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Do you have the Tomcat icon in the system tray?  It looks like a feather with a play button on it.  You may have to look in your hidden area.

Once you find it, right-click on it and select Configure...

Click the Java tab, and there you go!
You firghten me terribly. I would like to go home now. Here, take this tiny ad:
