I cannot automatically start the Tomcat7 service at startup on my Windows 7 laptop. On restarting Windows, I get the message "Access is Denied. Unable to Open the Service Tomcat7" even though I have the service set to log in as Administrator.
I've also set the Tomcat directory (which I located outside of the Program Files directories) and all its subdirectories to "Full Control" for all users (which should be overkill). Yet I can start it manually using the "Run as Administrator" context menu item.
If that works, why won't setting it to run as Administrator as a service work?
