Getting 'The image file tomcat6.exe is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine'
When trying to install Confluence as a service on a Windows 64 bit machine, by replacing the Tomcat 6 Binaries with the ones downloaded from http://svn.apache.org/viewvc/tomcat/tc6.0.x/tags/TOMCAT_6_0_16/res/procrun/ia64/ the following error was produced:
in the command terminal:
C:\Confluence\bin>service.bat install confluence Installing the service 'confluence' ... Using CATALINA_HOME: C:\Confluence\ Using CATALINA_BASE: C:\Confluence\ Using JAVA_HOME: C:\Progra~1\Java\jdk1.6.0_23 Using JVM: C:\Progra~1\Java\jdk1.6.0_23\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll The image file C:\Confluence\bin\tomcat6.exe is valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine. Failed installing 'confluence' service
The ia64 binaries only work with Itanium Chip machines.
Use the AMD64 binaries instead.
