Studio 2011 "No more seats available"

About ten days ago, I migrated my laptop hard drive to a SSD drive (no spinning disk so no erased data when bumped and much faster). The migration essentially makes a clone of your standard hard drive on the Solid State Drive. It was a piece of cake. Went very smoothly. We have a license server.

However, this morning when I opened Studio 2011 it said there were no seats available on the server. There is only one other user in our office and she was getting the same message. I thought, "Well, maybe I didn't return the seat from the old hard drive." So I reinstalled the old hard drive and tried to open Studio, but I got the same message.

I reinstalled the License Server Tool, hoping against hope that would help but it did not. Now both of the computers that use this server are getting the "no seats available message", but we can't return a seat either.

We desperately need to get this resolved. Any help would be MUCH appreciated. This is the second time we've had this problem and it is leaving a very bad taste in our mouths regarding SDL products.
