Default Ok,I am confused about Ilock and why I need one.

So I bought a used fast track off craigs. Label say "Pro Tools Essential SW kit V8.02 FOR CE".There seems to be a issue with disc.Center is discolored like finger prints but I cleaned disc.On 2 different PC's I couldnt read disc.
So I downloaded full installer for 8.03 and installed .On start up It asks me to authorize and finds no iLok.Is that because Im using 8.03 installer and not 8.02 that is on disc that I can not read?

Yet when I watch Avids videos ,for the product I have, about setting up fast track and Pro Tools M-powered it never mentions anything about a Ilok .Do I need a Ilok for this or not.Here is video I am referring to..


2nd part is where he already installed drivers and reboot and is starting up Pro Tools.There is no Ilok authorization needed.Why am I seeing it?
I know its used but that shouldnt have anything to do with.I bought it from a person who bought it.So avid already got the full price just because they guy sells it to me doesnt mean that I should have to buy Pro tools 8.
