After updating a Windows 7 VM Jenkins build slave to Qt Enterprise 5.5.0, Qt can not longer find the license?

When logged on as myself, I can build a project fine using Qt 5.5.0 with Qt creator without license issues.

I can see my license file:


I am running Jenkins slave as a Windows service.

Where does Qt expect to find ".qt-licenseā€ file ?

"QTDIR = C:\Qt\Qt5.5.0\5.5\msvc2013"
"Shadow build..."

Error: Qt license file was not found!
Project ERROR: License check failed! Giving up ...
