Error in starting Apache Tomcat 5.5.27 under Win 2k3 x64 Standard on Intel Xeon E5410

Hi,

I'm having trouble in starting Apache Tomcat under Windows Server 2003 Standard Edition x64 on Intel Xeon E5410 Quadcore Processor.

the JRE that I'm using is jre-1_5_0_07-windows-amd64.exe and I couldn't start Tomcat from the services icon on System tray.

below is the following error message from the error log. that i tried:

Error after i point the JVM to the default JRE 1.5 update 7 AMD64 installation dir.
Error after i put double quote in the JVM URL
Error again while i pointed out the JVM that is used by Oracle 10g AS
Error again when i check the 'use default' option

any idea please ?

Problem starting Tomcat with the 64-bit JVM on Maybach fixed.
 

 It was caused by the service executable itself, which is a 32-bit application. Solved by using the non-"Windows Service Installer" Tomcat distribution which has the .bat startup files.
 catalina.bat modified for the startup parameters otherwise set using the "Configure Tomcat" application. startup.bat and shutdown.bat now used to start and stop Tomcat.

Sounds like the java is not compatible at C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.5.0_07\bin. Can you conform that?

not to sure Singh,

I'd love to know if there is anyone who ever succeed in installing JRE/JDK under Window/Intel x64 environment.
