Altova LicenseServer (LicenseServer for short) and RaptorXML+XBRL Server are both started via Altova ServiceController.
Altova ServiceController (ServiceController for short) is an application for conveniently starting, stopping and configuring Altova services on Windows systems. ServiceController is installed with Altova LicenseServer and with Altova server products that are installed as services (DiffDog Server, FlowForce Server, Mobile Together Server, and RaptorXML(+XBRL) Server). ServiceController can be accessed via the system tray (screenshot below).
To specify that ServiceController starts automatically on logging in to the system, click the ServiceController icon in the system tray to display the ServiceController menu (screenshot below), and then toggle on the command Run Altova ServiceController at Startup. (This command is toggled on by default.) To exit ServiceController, click the ServiceController icon in the system tray and, in the menu that appears (see screenshot below), click Exit Altova ServiceController.
To start LicenseServer, click the ServiceController icon in the system tray, hover over Altova LicenseServer in the menu that pops up (see screenshot below), and then select Start Service from the LicenseServer submenu. If LicenseServer is already running, then the Start Service option will be disabled. You can also stop the service via ServiceController.
To start RaptorXML+XBRL Server, click the ServiceController icon in the system tray, hover over Altova RaptorXML+XBRL Server in the menu that pops up (see screenshot below), and then select Start Service from the RaptorXML+XBRL Server submenu. If RaptorXML+XBRL Server is already running, the Start Service option will be disabled. You can also stop the service via ServiceController.
|Note:||If RaptorXML+XBRL Server has been licensed to run only single-thread executions (typically because your machine is multiple-core, but your license is single-core), then you can use only one instance of RaptorXML+XBRL Server at a time: either as a service or from the command line. This is because the single-core license will be assigned automatically to the first instance that is started and is currently running. The second instance cannot be started until the first instance stops running.|
•If you wish to use RaptorXML+XBRL Server from the command line, but the service is already running, you must stop the service before using the command line.
•If you wish to start RaptorXML+XBRL Server as a service, make sure that no command line action is currently being executed. Otherwise, you will not be able to start the service.
