Start and Stop the License Daemons

The installer creates a windows service named Altair License Service and sets it for automatic startup. The installer will start the license daemon upon completion. If you want to stop the server, follow the steps below.

  1. Search for the Services program on your Windows machine.
  2. In the Servcies dialog, right-click on Altair License Server and select Stop.
  3. If you did not have the installer create the service during installation, you will have to use the Windows sc command to do so. Please refer to the Licensing Release Notes and the script named install_service.bat in the install/scripts directory.
