Installing Confluence as a service on XP-64 fails due to 32-bit binaries of Tomcat

      Used the standard 2.8.1 zip file and did a standard installation on a windows XP 64-bit SP2 machine using a personal Confluence License. I am using JDK 6 Update 6 (x64 version).

      Description

      Confluence runs fine except when trying to set it up as a service. Registering the service using service.bat works fine. However, when trying to start the service windows indicates an error 0 is returned by tomcat.

      When taking a look in the logs, the following error messages are found (jakarta_service_DDMMYYYY.log):

      [2008-06-30 23:40:21] [info] Running Service...
      [2008-06-30 23:40:21] [info] Starting service...

      [2008-06-30 23:40:25] [info] Procrun finished.

      After replacing the tomcat.exe and tomcatw.exe binaries by 64-bit versions, downloaded from the internet everything seems to work fine.

      The following links are related:

      I think either the installation guide should be adjusted to indicate this problem for 64-bit users (current verions) or the installation package should be adjusted such that the right version of tomcat is called, depending on the OS (new versions).
