Windows Services

When you install a unified IDOL Server, the installer automatically installs Windows Services for the License Server and the IDOL Proxy component (which automatically starts up other IDOL components when it starts). You can use these Windows Services to easily start and stop your IDOL Server while you test configurations.

You can also manually install components as Windows Services. See Install an IDOL Component as a Service on Windows.
