I think you need to be running tomcat-7.0.27 – user149205 Jul 30 '12 at 18:18

There was problem with java version 64bit, also have to instal JRE 64bit.

Details Once tomcat not started in Liferay I used Liferay IDE. Even in Eclips Juno(Liferay IDE) there was error "Failed to load the JNI shared library "C:/JDK/bin/client/jvm.dll" then found solution at this post on stackoverflow

It would be great if you could expand your answer a little, so future visitors can benefit from your solution as well. Which problem was there, exactly? Where does one get the JRE 64-bit and are there any special considerations needed while installing it? – slhck Jul 30 '12 at 19:41

I found the problem was fixed by seeing this post.

You can try these steps:

  • Go to environment variables.

  • Create "CATALINA_HOME" & set the path for tomcat folder.

Note: You should have better RAM configuration. Hope it helps.

Try to run catalina.bat run to see what's the error. Also checkout logs for any errors. Also remove the jre_1.6.0_20 from tomcat home and install a jvm of your own. This is a 32bit jvm which doesn't handle larger heap sizes.
