Could not start Tomcat 6 on Windows XP

I recently tried installing Tomcat 6 along with JDK 1.6 and was getting an error message saying it could not start Tomcat 6.  I searched the web and found the solution:

Basically, Tomcat 6 couldn’t find a file called msvcr71.dll.  I just copied it over from c:\windows\\framework\v1.1.4322 to c:\windows\system32 and was able to start tomcat6 using “net start tomcat6” on the command line.  (You could start the service using services.msc too).

Hope this helps somebody else…

    Thank you so much! The CRT DLL in system32 did the trick. I’m kind of amazed it wasn’t there already though. It seems like XP SP2 should have the 2003 version of the C run-time (msvcr71) in it by default.

  5. Nathan Says:

    I should mention that later on the Sun thread a Sun engineer posted to say that Tomcat/bin is a better place to put the msvcr71.dll as MS does not recommend putting this DLL in Windows/system32/ due to possible version conflicts. I verified that Tomcat/Bin also works well. I’m going to go that route.

    I don’t get it, is it so hard for SUN Corp. to link that library?! Nathan: thanks, your way is cleaner solution.
