Start Altova LicenseServer

In order to run an installation of an Altova server product (i) FlowForce Server; (ii) RaptorXML(+XBRL) Server; (iii) MobileTogether Server; (iv) MapForce Server; (v) StyleVision Server, that installation must be licensed with an Altova LicenseServer on your network. LicenseServer must be running continuously as a service in order for all connected MobileTogether Server installations to run. Stopping LicenseServer will also stop all connected MobileTogether Server installations. If this happens, you will need to first restart LicenseServer, and then restart the stopped MobileTogether Server installation that you want to work with.

To start LicenseServer, click the Altova ServiceController icon in the system tray, hover over Altova LicenseServer in the menu that pops up (see screenshot above), and then select Start Service from the LicenseServer submenu.
