ReactivateLicenseEx

Description

Reactivates a license to get the latest server-side values such as a new expiry date, new features, etc.

This function should be used to avoid the ActivationCount being incremented with every re-activation of the same system. The ActivationCount is used to detect fraud attempts when cloning virtual machines.
