Running license server as a windows service

Not sure where to ask this question as there is no group for the license server and nore is there a project for it in YouTrack so as we use for ReSharper I will ask it here :)

We have the license server up and running but have not been successfull in running it as a windows service. I have tried using the service.bat install command as per the tomcat docs but have no luck. It should be possible because this is how Jira, Confluence, TeamCity, etc run. I have confluence running as a service running on the same box but under a different port number.

The error messages I get in the jakarata log are:

[2011-12-01 15:48:51] [174  javajni.c] [error] %1 is not a valid Win32 application.
[2011-12-01 15:48:51] [986  prunsrv.c] [error] Failed creating java c:/Program Files/Java/jdk1.7.0\jre\bin\server\jvm.dll
[2011-12-01 15:48:51] [1260 prunsrv.c] [error] ServiceStart returned 1

Hello
     Apparently this error is caused by trying to run a 64-bit executable under 32-bit. Please try installing a 64-bit Tomcat from http://tomcat.apache.org and manually deploying the licenseServer.war there. Let me know if this helps. Thank you!

Hi Andrey,

Using the stand alone tomcat service works fine.

Are there any plans for adding the License Server project to your YouTrack issue tracking site? I love the service and would like to be able to raise issues and suggest features.

Thanks,

Matt Davis
