Hi Cris,

thank you very much for your help!

Here are the answers to your questions:
- Tomcat Windows Service has problems during automatic startup AND manual
startup from the Service panel.
- Older Java Versions: Using C:\Program
Files\Java\jre1.8.0_181\bin\server\jvm.dll Tomcat services starts. No
problems then.
- Windows Event Log: Message is only " The Apache Tomcat 9.0 Tomcat9
service terminated with service-specific error Incorrect function.. "
- Tomcat Service Panel: I specified the location of jvm.dll and do NOT use
- Windows Server 2008 is 64bit. And so is Java and Tomcat.

Best regards,
