Windows 7 Security Restrictions on Apache Tomcat Log Files.

The problem: I installed Apache Tomcat 7 on my Windows 7 machine. When I start up Tomcat, its console reports a FileNotFoundException suggesting that it cannot access the log file. Tomcat starts up fine after this exception is spat out, but it looks ugly.

The Solution: I am sure there is a better system wide fix but the quick fix was to right click on the Apache Tomcat folder, select properties, select security and edit the usergroups to have full access.
