vCO service won't start

VMware vCenter Orchestrator Server service stops immediately after it starts on Windows 2008 server (with vCenter installed).

It was working fine yesterday. I also rebooted the server today to see if that would help. vCenter works fine.

When I manually want to start the service, the only entry in the windows evemt log is "The VMware vCenter Orchestrator Server service entered the stopped state".

Any idea how to fix this, anybody?

vCenter 5.1

Windows 2008 R2 SP1

I found the problem. Orchestrator lost its license somehow. I added the vC lic back and it the service could start again. I found the problem by accessing the vCO Configuration Interface and browse the logs.
