The Windows Licensing Monitoring Service runs as LocalSystem in its own process. It does not share an executable file with other services. If the Windows Licensing Monitoring Service fails to load or initialize, the error is logged and the computer attempts to restart with the LastKnownGood configuration. If the LastKnownGood configuration fails, Windows 7 startup also fails, and the boot process halts with a Stop error. If you disable this service, Windows 7 will fail to start. Do NOT change this service startup configuration if your computer is working.
Windows Licensing Monitoring Service will not start, if the Software Protection service is stopped or disabled.
