Default Validation Key issue

Hey! I've got a Mbox 2 + pro tools le 8 off of my teachers when i back when i studied. it was a physical copy of pro tools and it worked great for my old comp.

Now i got a new laptop and tried to install pro tools on it, tho i do not have a DVD/CD driver, so i can not install it via the disk. So i browsed the forums here and someone linked a digital copy of pro tools le 8.
I installed it and everything seems like it works properly but now it's asking me for a validation code.
I have no memory of having to use a validation key when installing it with the cd, but that might just be my memory failing me, anyway, i can't seem to find this validation key, it said it was supposed to start with digi0800 something - on the avid site, but i've searched through the mbox-box and also the cd-case/wallet but find nothing.
Is it possible to get a digital version of the validation key by giving up the SN on the casing or something?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
- John

no
in 8 I think it was on the inside cover of the manual
if it's a new computer with W10, it's not compatible

you would be better off going over to Sweetwater and using the SN to upgrade to the 10/11/12 combo bundle

Well i have windows 8.

But i still have to buy another copy if i upgrade to 10/11 or 12, right?

Pro Tools is very OS specific and you bought second hand w/o doing a Transfer of Ownership.
Had you done a TOO you would have the activation code in your account at Avid.com

you can do this http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PT11LEup-e
or buy outright http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/PTSoftUSP
