LMtools License Service is not looking at my specified Path to the License file, Why?

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.

 

Many Thanks.

Brian.
