Unable to obtain access to Acrobat pro features when migrating to new desktop

I am the administrator for our Adobe licenses.  We have 4 Acrobat Pro licenses, one of which was assigned to my personal account.  (2 others have been assigned, one remains open).  The accounts are all good through July 2023. 

 

I recently retired an old workstation and put Acrobat Pro on my new replacement workstation.  I signed in under my personal account and password.  Acrobat Pro does not recognize me as an already licensed user, even though the admin consule identifies my name and email as a licensed user. Instead, to get access to Acrobat Pro features like editing a PDF, the software wants me to subscribe for yet another license.  I have terminated all Acrobat Pro sessions and made sure I removed Acrobat Pro from the workstation I retired. 

 

How can I get Acrobat Pro working on the new workstation without purchasing yet another license.

I have closed all sessions on all other prior
