Description Gili 2005-05-18 14:23:14 UTC
1) Install one instance of Tomcat with "install service" enabled
2) Install second instance of Tomcat with "install service" disabled

The 2nd installation will modify the existing Tomcat service to point to the new
Tomcat installation path.

Expected behavior: The 2nd installation should not touch the service
configuration since the installer was explicitly instructed *not* to do anything

The windows installer always installs Tomcat as a service. The text and web site
could be clearer about this and I have made some changes. If you want to install
multiple services, don't use the installer, use service.bat.
