FLS fails to start (specific for ZIP distribution)

Issue

Attempt to start FLS software leads to the error message says that it's totally failed to start up.

Starting JetBrains License Service... java.lang.RuntimeException: I'm totally failed to start up. See log :(

Solution

Upgrade JDK / JRE to JRE 1.8 or JDK 1.8.

If this version of JDK / JRE can't be set as default, use the following command to specify JDK / JRE home for usage by FLS:

  1. Change to the FLS installation directory using the command line.

  2. Stop FLS using the following command:

    ./bin/license-server.sh stop
  3. ./bin/license-server.sh java set <path to JRE home directory>
  4. Start FLS using the following command:

    ./bin/license-server.sh start
