Can't Get Windows Installation to Work

I have followed all of the instructions at  with no success.  No matter what I did I could not get Ganib to access localhost:8080.  I did try changing the server.xml file but 7070 would not work either.  I verified that both of these ports are open.  There was nothing accessing them.
I then downloaded Apache Tomcat 8.0 and using the Tomcat Web Application Manager deployed the Ganib context.xml.
Now when I run startup.bat I get a http status 404 -/kaldin ...The requested resource is noavt available.
I have tried launching using localhost:8080/ganib  and I get the 404 error as well.
I am at my wits end trying to get Ganib to run.  I have been trying for days now with various workarounds and no success.  Can anyone help?
So by using the Tomcat Monitor and starting the service I can access my localhost and get the first page of Ganib to open.  Unfortunately that first page tells me it cannot connect to the database although I have gone through all the steps and verified the database was created.  Confirmed the details in my context.xml file.   I don't know where to go next.  Any help would be appreciated.
