Problem:

When running the runtime product Server for COBOL or Server Enterprise Edition the Micro Focus License Manager does not appear to want to start again.  When attempting to restart the Micro Focus License Manager service via the Control Panel, the following message is returned:

"The Micro Focus License Manager on local computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs"

Resolution:

The message is coming from mflmwin (Micro Focus License Manager). For some strange reason the machine gets into a state where the License Manager will not start. Due to the anti-hack code in the License Manager the only solution is to restart the machine in order to clear the processes and shared memory.
