Wiped hard drive before deactivating software by mistake

I accidentally wiped a hard drive clean and reinstalled the osx on it before deactivating some of my software, and now fear I may have used up the allowed 2 computer install limit of it.

Is there a way I can fix this?

I know I goofed here, I do have a time machine backup of it with all my other apps I made before wiping the hard drive. I thought,

if I used the migration assistant to install all my apps and documents again, and them go in and deactivate the software,

and then do a rewipe of the hard drive and reinstall of the osx again on the hard drive would fix this?

It all depends on the software, though contacting the vendor should fix it

Is it Adobe CC you're talking about? There's a 'log out of all' function if it detects more than 2 computers trying to use the same license.
