0000141: Windows 2003 Resin service installation.
RSN-135
The bug is simply when you use the Caucho tutorial on how setup your resin services doesnt work for most of win2k3 users. I'm a programmer and we actually test resin to see if it worth a shoot. We passed 1 week to try setup and stuff to make everything work like a charm.

There few step to help you, cause since I didn't find this solution in here or mixed through ALOT of post, ill try to resume them here :

1. SET YOUR ENVIRONNEMENT VARIABLE (LOCAL + SYSTEM)

   JAVA_HOME = PATH://TO/JAVA/JDK [^]
   RESIN_HOME = PATH://TO/RESIN [^]

2. INSTALL THE RESIN SERVICE (httpd.exe -install)
3. OPEN REGEDIT TO MANUALLY EDIT THE SERVICE OPTION.
   (I.E) :: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\Resin
   CHANE THE 'ImagePath' TO SOMETHING EXACTLY LIKE THIS :
   
   %RESIN_HOME%\bin\httpd.exe -service -conf "D:\resin-pro-3.0.12\conf\resin.conf" -Xrs -stdout "stdout.log" -stderr "stderr.log"

Reboot or Save and start your service. (Make sure that your resin work in command line (Manually, not service) so you can know there is no configuration problem to fix at the service installation time).

You gotta blame the one who worked on the Default Service installation option, the exact poroblem is within the argument. The way the httpd.exe put the argument into the ImagePath value in registry is wrong.

The way to do it is : file.exe -option "option argument 0000001" -option2 "option stuff 0000002"

Since this costed us more in configuration and debug than buying the ReSin license itself... We though that sharing this solution with you guy would be a good idea........

Windows 2003 Entreprise Server + JDK 5.0 Update 3 + ReSin as standalone 3.0.12.
Quad Xeon + 1 GB ram etc.. Good system.
