I've come across a situation where LMtools is configured correctly to point to a location on the C drive where the license is usually stored. eg: C:\MentorGraphics\Licensing\license_fl.txt
On applying a new license file the service stopped working. On investigation is seems that the service is actually looking in C:\flexlm\license.dat although that is not what is specified in the license service. If I place a copy of the new license in C:\flexlm\license.dat it works fine - but where is it picking this location up from and how do I change it to work with my specified license folder?
This is a license server running on a virtual machine.
