Solved: Changing Activation Date.

I am running 8.4.1. It's next activation is due on the 15th of May. Unfortunately, my PC will be off the internet for a couple of days around this date. Is there any way that I can do the activation a couple of days early?
I considered deactivating X1 and then reactivating it. Would this work? If so, are there any other implications to doing this, e.g. having to reinstall, losing settings, etc.?

Thanks,
Brian.

OK, this had a straightforward solution. Apparently, whenever X1 successfully connects to the internet, it resets the activation clock.

My issue was that my firewall normally blocks X1 - I only let it through when an activation is required. So all I had to do was allow it through shortly before I went offline.

Cheers,
Brian.
