I have just installed Apache Tomcat, my environment variables are as follows

CATALINA_HOME
C:\apache-tomcat-6.0.32

JAVA_HOME
C:\Progra~1\Java\jdk1.6.0_21

JRE_HOME
C:\Progra~1\Java\jre6


when I go to http://localhost:8080/ it works but when I click on "Tomcat Manager" I get a GUI pop up wiht

The A user name and password are being requested by http://localhost:8080. The site says: "Tomcat Manager Application" and also requesting password to "Manager-gui".
my password does not work, even if I have edited the C:\apache-tomcat-6.0.32\conf\tomcat_user file and added:

<role rolename="manager-gui"/>
<user username="tomcat" password="s3cret" roles="manager-gui"/>
Can anyone help please.

I think the rolename needs to be "manager" (the other built in one is "admin", so try that one if "manager" doesn't work).

The other problem is that you appear to be logging in with the username "manager-gui", when that's a role, not a username. "tomcat" is the username, according to that snippet.
