Floating License Server Help

Windows service failed to start

Issue

Floating License Server failed to start or stopped right after start when FLS is launched as Windows service

Solution

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

  • %userprofile%\.jb-license-server sub-directory in user directory

  • <fls_home> directory

  • %programData%\JetBrains\LicenseService directory on the machine with FLS is installed where %programData% is a path to an application data directory

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