Windows Tomcat start failed command 127.0.0.1 could not be found

I just installed Tomcat 7 on my Windows machine and tried to fire it up through Netbeans. But instead of a running server, I just got an error message that command 127.0.0.1 could not be found (Localized error message: Der Befehl “127.0.0.1” ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder konnte nicht gefunden werden.).

I remember that I read about it in a Tomcat bugtracker (but can’t find it any more). Well the solution is pretty simple:
Just open [tomcat home]\bin\catalina.bat and remove the “-characters from lines 196 and 201 (in the code snippet below it’s line 1 and 6):

set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% %LOGGING_CONFIG%

if not "%LOGGING_MANAGER%" == "" goto noJuliManager
set LOGGING_MANAGER=-Djava.util.logging.manager=org.apache.juli.ClassLoaderLogManager
:noJuliManager
set JAVA_OPTS=%JAVA_OPTS% %LOGGING_MANAGER%
