I'm running Tomcat 5.5.9 on a Windows XP sp2 or Windows 2003 and I can't seem to get the Tomcat service to startup automactically when the machine boots up.  I do not know how to have the service startup type set to automatic. What parameter should I put to change the start up type?

Has anyone encountered this problem?   If so, how did you get the service to start up automatically?

do you know how to get to the services applet in the adminsitrative tools of windows?
check there to find the tomcat service.
if you don't find it, you have to check to find a file "installservice.bat" in the bin folder of the tomcat installation to create the service

I just know there is a file called service.bat. But I do not know the parameter or script about the service. Do you have any idea?
