License upgrade program for demo NSP version

My NSP 2004 preview has expired and I requested a new license from the website. I got the email with a new license. But when I tried to update the license, I got the following error. What is wrong? Urgent, please help.

C:\usr\sap\NSP\DVEBMGS00\exe>saplicense -install HFKOTJYWCWA9DPVZPZ7N8YB1

      • SAPLICENSE (Release 700) ERROR ***

Try using the SLICENSE transaction code. It should work.

If you can not get onto the system, set your system date back to a date when the license was valid. Start the engine, log on, go to transactoin SLICENSE, apply the new license, log off, change system date back to current date, and re-start engine.
