ActivateSerial Issue

We had a server previously registered with activateSerial that WAS working, and we decided to test out the uninstall / reinstall process for a deployment to another server as a manager wanted us to test it out. These are the steps we did:
  1. Deactivate Serial
  2. Uninstall Red-gate sql compare
  3. Reinstall latest v13 of sql compare
  4. Use http://127.0.0.1:22223/dialog/views/settings.html to check the box enabled
  5. Run the activate serial
This is where the problem occurred. The serial would not activate. We kept getting:

    E:\Program Files (x86)\Red Gate\SQL Compare 12>sqlcompare /activateSerial:************************
    SQL Compare Command Line V12.3.3.4490
    Copyright c 1999 - 2017 Redgate Software Ltd
    SQL Compare: expired, edition standard
    Activating license
    Please login to your Redgate account to start a trial or configure licensing. Visit http://127.0.0.1:22223/dialog/views/entry.html?connectionId=urn:uuid:50baa9f9-8322-4f0e-ae59-561f5d2c4bd2 in your browser to continue.
    Exiting since no valid license was found

We even then tried logging into the UI with a red-gate ID. That did not help either. Can anyone suggest how to fix this? We had a deployment for Thursday night that is now going to have to be delayed.
