Tomcat Windows Install

Downloaded .zip file 64bit from

unzipped it in a downloads folder.

This page discusses how to install tomcat as a service

It says I have to start a cmd.exe window and run it as administrator.

I copied the tomcat-6.0.blah.blah file to c:\tomcat
Then I right-clicked on a cmd.exe file and selected run-as-administrator

Then I navigated to c:\tomcat
it says to:

C:\> service.bat install

um ok, but you have to be in c:\tomcat\bin first for it to run the batch. So you really need to change directory to your tomcat\bin folder before trying to run this batch.   Anyway it says:

using CATALINA_HOME: “C:\tomcat”
using CATALINA_BASE: “C:\tomcat”
using JAVA_HOME:    “C:\Program files\Java\jdk1.6.0_18”
using JVM:          “C:\program files\Java\jdk1.6.0_18\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll”

But it apparently isn’t running yet.    I went to control panel, computer management, services and applications, services, and found Apache Tomcat on the list.   It was set to ‘manual’.   

I right-clicked on it, and changed it to ‘automatic.’

It didn’t start right away, so went back into the properties and told it to start.

Yay, I got the Tomcat page!
