Despite what that MS article says, it's not necessary to delete the entire MSLicensing key, you just need to drill down one more level to get to this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing\Store\

In the STORE key, delete all LICENSEXXX subkeys, where XXX=numbers.

Such as:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing\Store\LICENSE000
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MSLicensing\Store\LICENSE001

etc.

That article is unlikely to be relevant unless you have 32-bit terminal services add-ins that you need to work on a 64-bit client.
Licensing works fine from a 64-bit client to a 32-bit host.
