Retrieving a seat from a broken PC

My church recenty purchased a 3 seat license for QuickBooks Desktop.

I installed the product on a PC that now refuses to boot.

Have I "lost" a seat?

The product was never used to open a company file, but I do not recall if the license key gets entered as part of the installation process.

You may reuse the seat on other machine anytime you want as long as you are able to activate it. You don't need to activate the license if you are installing it on a server as storage only.
