How can we add the APM JVM arguments to Tomcat when running Tomcat as a Windows Service?
All APM Tomcat Agent versions for Windows.
1. Stop the Tomcat processes.
2. Open a command prompt and go to the tomcat\bin directory and run service.bat install.  For example:
    C:\apache-tomcat-9.0.14\bin\service.bat install

3. Once the service is installed, run the Tomcat Administrator by going to C:\apache-tomcat-9.0.14\bin and double clicking on tomcat9w.exe.  For other versions of Tomcat, i.e. 7, 8, the name of the file will be tomcat7w.exe, tomcat8w.exe respectively.
