    I have gone ahead and deactivated the device you requested. There should now be a free seat on this license that you can use with another device. Please note that beginning with version 4.0.11 Pix4D desktop, you have the ability to remotely deactivate a device from the administrator portal of your Pix4D account. You can read about that on the top of this page.
