Java = JDK1.6 32 bit
Operating System = Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard (64 bit system)
Tomcat installation file = apache-tomcat-7.0.12.exe
Tomcat silent install does not work on Windows 2008 Server.
When the following is executed in a command window: apache-tomcat-7.0.12.exe /S
it finishes immediately ( < 1 second).
I checked the "C:\Program Files (x86)" (which is where I would expect to find it) and the "C:\Program Files" directories for "Apache Foundation Softare\Tomcat 7.0"
1) How can I do a silent install of Tomcat 7.0 on a 64 bit Windows system (Server 2008 R2 Standard)?
2) Is there a way to tell the Tomcat installer the location of JRE6? (NOTE: Setting the JAVA_HOME and JAVAHOME environment variables does not work.)
3) Is there another way to install Tomcat 7.0 say by copying the installation files to the target system?
* The problem seems to be that the installer (i.e. apache-tomcat-7.0.12.exe) can not find the Java JRE. When I run the wizard and it gets to the screen where you can specifiy the location of the JRE the text field is blank. But when I run the installer on a Windows XP 32 bit system, the path of JRE 6 is displayed in the text field.
