Difference between "License Server" and "Licensing Service"

Description

What is the difference between "License Server" and "Licensing Service"?

Solution

«Server» and «Service» doesn't mean the same thing:

• «License Server» is necessary only for Network Licenses. It is used for activation and managing of the Network licenses and should be installed on a network server — a computer which will manage and distribute licenses among workstations in a network.

• «Licensing Service» is necessary for all licenses. For correct operation of applications the Licensing Service (LicensingService.exe) is required.
