Tomcat issue "windows could not start apache tomcat on local computer" after java update issue with resolution

Hi friends,

Today I have faced an issue with Tomcat service starting. I would like to share with you the resolution as well. Please find the details below.

Root cause

Updated java version


  • Navigate to you apache installed folder
  • Go bin folder
  • Double click on "Tomcat(X)w.exe" where X the version of tomcat.
  • In my case it is "Tomcat8w.exe" because the version is 8
  • Select "Use Default". So that, it uses the JAVA_HOME version by default.
  • Click on OK
  • Start the Tomcat service and enjoy deploying
