License Server Help

Windows service failed to start

Issue:

License server failed to start or stopped right after start when license server is launched as Windows service

Solution:

Make sure that the software is allowed to read/write from/to:

  • <license server user's home directory>\.jb-license-server sub-directory in user directory.

  • <license_server_home> directory.

  • C:\ProgramData\JetBrains\LicenseService directory on the machine with the license server is installed where C:\ProgramData is a path to an application data directory.

In case of MSI distribution software is running by the service user `JetBrainsLS`.
