How can I install the compuware license service on a Windows 2008 R2 server? The QA Directo installation only installs the DLM client, not the service!
On Vista and later Windows Operating Systems, Windows security prevents the DLM, or CPWR, service from being installed when installing a concurrent license, as designed, even when the user is a member of the Administrator group. To install the service, the user explicitly right click and run the Distributed License Management tool as Administrator, if prompted supply the creditionals to run as Adminstrator. This will enable the service to be installed and started when installing a concurrent liceense.
One additional question: since QA Director obviously is no more supported by Micro Focus, how can users of Silk Testpartner achieve a new license and activate it? Because I will need a new license key anyway because we are moving to a new server to hold the license file and license service.
