I have tomcat running as a service on Windows Server 2003 (32 bit).  I need to set the class path variable prior to starting tomcat, and I am getting this error using the code below.  

[420 prunsrv.c] [error]
The operation completed sucessfully.
[1327 prunsrv.c] [error]
Load configuration failed

Is it possible to do what I'm trying to do and does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance
set path=%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin;%JAVA_HOME%\jre\bin\classic;%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%path%;
 
call "C:\Tomcat_5.5.25\bin\tomcat5.exe" "//RS//Tomcat5 ++Classpath=%ADVISOR_COMMON_HOME%\lib\hsqldb.jar;%CLASSPATH%;"

You should change the class path via the control panel supplied with Tomcat. If you installed in the standard location it will be:

C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Tomcat 5.5\bin\tomcat55w.exe

Click on the Java tab to change the Class Path settings. Then click the OK button and restart the service if necessary.

I have attached a screen shot from Tomcat 6.0 but it looks pretty much the same for Tomcat 5.5.

What if I did not install Tomcat as a service? Where do I set the classpath?
