Hi 05500,

there is no step by step guidance. You have to call Support in order to get a reset license, if you have a valid enterprise license.
When you receive the reset license you install it like any other license and you're ready to go again.

If your on a free license, you will hardly get a reset license. But you can follow this answer: and check the comment made by @Drainy.

Hope that helps ...

cheers, MuS
