ipMonitor Free Edition ipMonitorSrv service doesn't start

I’ve downloaded the ipMonitor Free Edition (11.1.982) but I can’t get the “ipMonitor Service” to stay started (the other 2 services do start). The ipMonitorSrv service starts then stops immediately.  Looking in the ipMonitorSrv_log.txt it shows it’s erroring when trying to create an item related to licensing.

I also loaded the ipmconfig.exe tool and attempted to use the Software Licensing option but it just drops errors in the ipmconfig_log.txt log.

It kind of looks like it's trying to find the licensing manager which is NOT included with the Free edition and the only way to get it from what I've seen is to have a license for another product which I do not have.
