PLM License server Issue

I'm new to this community. I have a problem regarding the installation of NX 11.0. When I try launch lmtools.exe and try to start the server I get this error: "Server Start Failed. The Server May Already Be Running!!". Attempting a force stop and then restarting did not help. I think the problem starts from here: There is this service called "Siemens PLM License Server" that when I even try to start it manually gives an error. "Unable to start service. The operation could not be completed. The dependency service or group failed to start."
I installed Java and updated to the latest version.
Kind Regards

Same issue I faces before for NX 10 though. Downgrading Java and reinstalling everything helped.

Thanks for your reply
To what version should I downgrade?

Re: PLM License server Issue

Java is only used by the installer, the license server is not using Java at all.

Make sure to use the latest license server release available at Server DownloadLicense Server Download
