It runs as service because its designers envisioned that many (all) software packages are going to use their "amazing" licensing solution. So instead of bundling it with every app, it gets installed once as service and serves many clients. Typical "we'll rule the world" example.So can anyone tell me:
- why does the Flexnet service have to run 24/7 even when Adobe software is not running?
- Is there anyway to have the service start and stop when I open and shut down my Adobe software?
The only way to have it start and stop with application is to use batch file (or some kind of scripting that's available to you).
Not what you want to hear.
