Error “Unable to stop hasplms service”

Example:


Install a provisional license with RTE 6.56


Install haspdinst.exe with -i command (this is provisonal license for another product with RTE 6.56)


Installation gives error “Unable to stop hasplms service”


This is though documented in 6.56 readme


-> When upgrading the Run-time Environment, ensure that it is not currently being accessed. Although the installation program can terminate applications that are accessing the Run-time, it cannot terminate running services.


Another way of installing provisional license on the same machine where already a provisional license is installed, just use provisional V2C file (instead of bundled RTE) and that can be applied through ACC (http://localhost:1947/_int_/checkin.html).
