Note

Some thirdparty applications add libraries to the system directory in Windows. These take precedence over Tomcat when DLL libraries are looked up. This means that if they have the same name as the those used by Tomcat native libraries, they are loaded instead of the libraries distributed with JBoss Enterprise Web Server. Tomcat therefore does not start, and does not log any error messages about it in Windows Event Log, or Tomcat log files. Errors can only be seen by using catalina.bat run.
If this behaviour occurs, check the content of the C:\windows\System32\ directory and PATH directories, and check for DLLs library conflicting with those shipped with Enterprise Web Server. In particular, look for libeay32.dil, ssleay32.dll, and libssl32.dll.
