Can't run Apache Tomcat as Service on Win Web Server 2008 R2

I've just installed Windows Web Server 2008 R2, and can't get Apache Tomcat to run as a Service.  

Whenever I try to start the Tomcat service I get an error that says:
"Windows could not start the Apache Tomcat 6 on LEVELSSERVER. For more information review the System Event Log.  If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact service vendor and refer to service-specific error code 0."

In the error log, I get the following two entries:
The Apache Tomcat 6 service entered the stopped state.
The Apache Tomcat 6 service terminated with service-specific error The operation completed successfully..

I found a few posts that said msvcr71.dll is missing from C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre6\bin or System32, or SysWow64.  I tried putting it in all of those directories and still get the error.  Please help...

I haven't tried to run it as a Windows service, but it certainly ought to have its log file still - check it
