We had 4.0 running in C:/JazzTeamServer4 and it was running as a service. I am now in charge of CLM and we upgraded to 4.0.2 in the directory C:/JazzTeamServer402

The instructions from here:

Are if you are doing a fresh install. How do I remove the old "service" so I can reboot and start the new tomcat from the new directory. I am done with Step1 on Procedure, but not doing step2 because I believe the old "service" will start the old tomcat.

Please assist.

To remove the old service, you can just issue the "sc delete <service name>" command from command prompt.  For example, if you have a service called Apache Tomcat - CLM401:

sc delete CLM401 and you should see the following returned:

[SC] DeleteService SUCCESS

Glad that works. FYI only (in case this helps other folks), the instructions to deleting the existing service are in step 2 of the procedure in this topic:
Note... the steps in "Before you begin" are numbered. Be sure to scroll down for the "Procedure" section.
