Issues with activating Software on my new computer

Hi, I bought my Akai Advance 49 a few years ago before the 3.0 updates I now since then have bought a new computer and wish to transfer all my Sounds and package that came with the purchase of the Akai advance professional 49.

I started by downloading iLok on my new computer and activated the codes on the new computer And then de-activated them on my old computer (I also Uninstalled all the programs) To prevent the activation limit from reaching the limit 2 per sound program.

But when I had downloaded all the sounds and needed to type in the activation codes they were denied cause the activation limit had been reached.
On my iLok account, it says that there still is one activation left on each of the software but it still doesn't allow me to activate them.

I need help requiring new codes or help with activating the codes
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

And yes my computer new computer does meet the requirements of all the software.
I'm using Windows 10 64-bit

The software in question :
VIP Software Package: Eighty Eight Ensemble

VIP 3 Software

(Required) VIP 3 Plus Instruments
Mark Knight Expansion for Hybrid 3 (Win)
Rene Amesz Expansion for Hybrid 3 (Win)
Transfuser (PC)

VIP: Advance Drivers Drivers for the Advance Keyboard series.
Advance Driver v1.0.5 (Win)

I have searched and looked at guides on the website but the videos that AKAI has uploaded are outdated since they updated their website. hopefully, this catches their attention and they'll upload new guides that match the current Web layout.
