Solidworks Activation failing

I have been using Solidworks 2017 without any issues. When I travel for my normal 8-5, I take my personal laptop with me in case any consulting work pops up. I went to deactivate my license from my main PC and it took an unusually long time. I thought the it was frozen. It gave me an error about server connectivity, but apparently still deactivated my license - client side only. Now I cannot reactivate and I get the activation count exceeded error. I don't have a subscription service because the amount of contracting work I do doesn't really justify the cost of maintenance. Any ideas on what to do? Is there a way to force deactivation from solidworks servers or can I call my VAR and have them reset with no active maintenance subscriptions?
