I had a laptop crash and had to install everything on a new laptop 

When re-installing my CS5, the serial number is not accepted.

This was a student license from 2011.

My Adobe account from that time was not active anymore, so I had to create a new account (??)

and of course, that doesn't contain my license 

How can I reinstall it ?

I still have the mail from 2011 with the serial and the original install DVD but the combination doesn't work anymore.

Thanks for any help you can give me.
