Subject Re: Can't run windows executable or service
Date Fri, 04 May 2012 23:54:19 GMT

Maybe... but tomee comes with tomee.exe and not tomcat7.exe. Are those 
supposed to be the same?

The stackoverflow thread states that Tomcat 6 comes with only 32-bits 
service executables. But tomee is Tomcat 7, and it comes with thee 
executables: one for x86, other for amd64 and the third for ia64. So I 
suppose the intention was to provide ready to use 64-bit binaries, and 
if they don't work it's a bug.

How do I find if a windows exe is a 32 or 64-bits executable?
