2. Cancel all the pending activation.
3. Back up and Delete the files from C:\ProgramData\Schneider Electric\Licensing\BackEndModule1
4. Back up and Delete the LicenseManagerData.db from C:\ProgramData\Schneider Electric\Licensing\License Manager\Data and replace with the clean db file from C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ArchestrA\Licensing Framework\License Manager
