I installed Tomcat 5.0.19 to 2 Windows XP machines, and it worked fine. However, when I tried to install Tomcat 5.0.19 to Windows 2000 and 2003 servers, it didn't work.

The installation file I used was jakarta-tomcat-5.0.19.exe. When installation was finished, Tomcat showed up on the list of Windows Services on the 2000 and 2003 servers. But when I tried to start the service, I got an error:

Could not start Tomcat service on local computer.
Error 1053: The service didn't respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

Does anyone know why this error happens?
