There are several licensed components for WDS:
5770WDS V7R2M0 5050 IBM Rational Development Studio for i
5770WDS V7R2M0 5103 Application Development ToolSet
5770WDS V7R2M0 5101 ILE COMPILERS: RPG, COBOL, C/C++
5770WDS V7R2M0 5102 HERITAGE COMPILERS: OPM, S/36, S/38 RPG CO
Make sure you have a key for all of them. (This is a capture from a V7R2 system so the product ID will be different as well as the description.

Subject: 5722WDS Usage limit of 0 exceeded but successfully entered
I receive a message "Usage limit of 0 exceeded. Grace period expires in 66 days..." when using STRPDM, however the license is shown as (what I interpret to be) "valid" status.
OS/400 version is V5R2M0.
When I display licenses there appears to be nothing wrong with the 5722WDS
Product identifier . . . . : 5722WDS
License term . . . . . . . : V5R2
Feature . . . . . . . . . . : 5050
Description . . . . . . . . : Websphere Development Studio
System serial number . . . : 10....M
Processor group . . . . . . : P10
License Key . . . . . . . . : xyz123 xyz123 xyz123
Usage limit . . . . . . . . : *NOMAX
Expiration date . . . . . . : *NONE
Vendor data . . . . . . . . : *NONE
... but the warning appears every time I use PDM.
I have licenses for 5722SS1 as V5R2 and V5R2M0 and have entered both of them (I don't know if this makes a difference). I got the same error with only the 5722SS1 V5R2 license entered, so I added the V5R2M0 license (which was the same key number).
My primary interest is understanding why this is happening for 5722WDS.
All of the other licenses I entered appear to be in good status and no warnings for other products are found in DSPLOG except for 5722WDS.
Ideally, I'd prefer to not wipe and reinstall every 70 days when I have what I believe to be a valid license key. Just trying to learn a bit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
