Terminal Services temporary license.

I'm using Windows 2003 Terminal Services. Its not activated and issuing temporary licenses to client computers. One of the XP computer can't connect to Windows 2003 TS because its license expired. I want this computer to re-connect to Windows 2003 TS. This is urgent!

Is there any way or registry key to delete from server or from client machine so that this client could connect to 2K3 TS?

Thanks!

Specifically:

1.
 On the client, navigate to the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing.
 
2.
 Click MSLicensing.
 
3.
 On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File.
 
4.
 In the File name box, type mslicensingbackup, and then click Save.
 
5.
 If you need to restore this registry key in the future, double-click mslicensingbackup.reg.
 
6.
 On the Edit menu, click Delete, and then click Yes to confirm the deletion of the MSLicensing registry subkey.
 
7.
 Close Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.
 

When the client is restarted, the missing registry key is rebuilt.

Make the XP machine have the same user/pass credentials of the server administrator and it won't need a licence.
