# Tomcat 5.5 installed as service but not visible in services?

I have installed tomcat 5.5 as a service in my system, but when i open the services using services.msc from the run in window, the Tomcat 5.5 is not available there!! What may be the problem, Any suggestions?

Might sound a bit too simple, but I find myself often in that situation, to discover that I actually have it installed , but is not loaded or running at the moment. Other times, having a load of services in some systems, I don't see it in the list because in some cases is named differently (but Tomcat word is in it, somehow). Anyway, if you keep having issues, at Bitnami.org there is an installer for Tomcat, it might make things easier.

You can use SC command to bring it in your service window(mentined as services.msc). For example- Look for Tomcat.exe on you tomcat installation directory. let say the path is as- D:\Tomcat7\bin\tomcat7.exe

sc Create Tomcat7 binPath= "D:\Tomcat7\bin\tomcat7.exe" DisplayName= "Apache Tomcat 7"
