Pete's Log: Awesome error messages, tomcat service edition

The Windows version of Tomcat comes with a nice little script (service.bat) to install Tomcat as a Windows service. My favorite part of this script was when it gave me this error:


I didn't find the text "NonAlpha 95" terribly helpful, but it turns out my error was that the service name I was trying to use included an underscore. Removing the underscore got rid of the error.

Service installed.

95 is the ASCII code for underscore. In case anyone was going to comment/ask.
