I have a flexlm license manager that runs on Windows Server 2012 R2, to license a software I'm working on.
I have a new build type/configuration, under which the service starts and stops immediately, and I get the following error:

The FLEXlm Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some 
services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or 

The exe pointed to by the service is lmgrd.exe and when I run it from the folder it runs as expected. I can't seem to locate the logs for this exe (3rd party license manager - flexLM by Flexera), and there is nothing in the Event Viewer.
What can I do to investigate this further? How can I turn on FlexLM logging? What's different in running the exe manually from a service executing it?
