I have just purchased new laptop and need to download my Adobe software into it.  My Illustrator CS 5 won't download unless original Illustrator 8.0 is in computer, but 8.0 is not loading on the Windows 64 bit operating system.  How can I get the original program loaded in order to load all of the purchased upgrades?

No way. AI 8 is simply not compatible. It shouldn't be necessary at all. All that is required is to input the serial number in teh upgrade installer.

I have the same issue... I upgraded my machine to W10 from W7, and previously had 8.0 with a CS2 upgrade. I have my CS2 disc but cannot locate my 8.0 disc. The CS2 installer is asking for the disc, a local folder for the license, etc, none of which I have. I already entered the CS2 license, and the 8.0 license or disc is still needed, so I'm stumped.

There's no chance. The activation server for CS2 - CS4 products were cutoff several years ago. That are dead products.

...and Illustrator 8.0 is from 1998. The installers are no longer available and likely wouldn't work in any event.
