Description Jeff 2008-10-13 15:33:38 UTC
I install JDK 1.6_5 or 1.6_7 and neither will work right after installation.  If i install JDK 1.5_14 it works fine.  What do I need to adjust to get it to work?  I am using Tomcat 5.5.17.  All I want is the service to start.

Looks like this is a duplicate of Bug 41538. 

Upshot is Sun added a JVM dependency on msvcr71.dll, which is NOT guaranteed to be in the PATH. Sun has a bug listed as "Closed, not a defect" for this general issue (which is wrong in my opinion.)
