How to set JVM arg in Tomcat7-Windows?

I am using Tomcat7.0.53 on Windows7. I want to add this JVM arg "-XX:-UseSplitVerifier" in Tomcat but am not sure how to do it on Windows.
Had it been Linux, I would have added it in setenv.sh as
JAVA_OPTS="${JAVA_OPTS} -XX:-UseSplitVerifier"

I have no clue how to do the same on Windows for this specific Tomcat version. Any help on this regard will be highly appreciated.

Thanks,
Russy

The Windows equivalent for setenv.sh is setenv.bat

Although the syntax is slightly different, since it's Windows:



JAVA_OPTS is initially blank, however, so the substitution would only be meaningful if you're using several lines to build up the options.

Thank you Tim for your response. I realised that I had downloaded "32-bit/64-bit Windows Service Installer" which did not have the setenv file. I later downloaded "64-bit Windows zip" and added the mentioned JVM arg in the setenv file there and it worked.
Thanks again.

Actually, the stock generic Tomcat does not have setenv.bat or setenv.sh included. But the catalina.sh/bat scripts look to see if you created one and use it if you did.
