If it isn't, recheck that you entered the correct information during the Find/Replace step. I initially followed some instructions I found on You Tube, but they didn't work right (or I didn't follow them correctly).
Since you get 5 slots the worst that will happen is you've wasted a slot and now effectively have 4 slots available including the new computer.
That may or may not present a problem depending on how you use your authorised slots.
I bought a new laptop that had Windows 7 installed and spent a day and a half transferring programs, photos, etc. The last task was to transfer my i Tunes music, something I expected to be rather straight forward, This turned out to be a daunting task, not because the process is difficult, but because most of the online how-to articles grossly over-complicate the issue.

I bought a 1- terabyte (1000 gigabyte) external drive for less than 0.
It made transferring many gigabytes of photos from the old PC to the new one really easy, plus it serves as a back-up for all of my media files (photos, music, movies, etc.) Your i Tunes files may not all be stored in the same place if you imported music from CD's, other i Tunes libraries, and the i Tunes store.
I'm fairly happy with Windows 7, especially when it comes to setting up networking and printers, but I wish it would stop trying to "help" me by assuming what I'm trying to do and stepping in where it's not wanted. If so it would be a huge help as I have an extensive library and need to free up some space on the laptop. Your's were the first I found that went in the XML changes, something I discovered while looking at the files before finding your artcile. You should also mention that it's a good idea to deauthorise the old computer before binning it, and then authorising the new computer once your steps are complete.
