Hello,

Im using the alfresco tomcat bundle zip file of version 3.3g (alfresco-community-tomcat-3.3g.zip) . I extracted the zip file, set the dir_root, JAVA_HOME and CATALINA_HOME and was able to start alfresco successfully.
However, i want to set tomcat as a windows service, so that it automatically starts when windows boots, but there is no service.bat in alfresco-community-tomcat-3.3g\tomcat\bin.
I tried following instructions given at http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Configuring_Alfresco_as_a_Windows_Service,but there is no tomcat6.exe either.There is startup.bat,catalina.bat etc.
What steps to follow to install tomcat as a windows service in this case ?

Thank You
