Running as a Service
(See also: Important Considerations) In order to run the UltraPort SQL Schema MS Windows Service you must have purchased a 'Professional' license and activated your software (see Getting Started). If running the MS Windows Services you should always RESTART (ie Stop and then Start) the services whenever you make any changes to your database schemas, inbound processors, outbound processors, or database maintenance properties.
