          If you go into help/about fireworks you will see the serial number.

            It's asking you for a serial number for a standalone version of FW which you
            don't have. You're entering a serial number for Studio 8 which won't be
            accepted since standalone version serials and Suite/Studio serials are two
            different things in Adobe's eyes.

            AFAIK, I don't think you can upgrade from Studio 8 to standalone FW CS3.

            You can upgrade FW8 to FW CS3 or Studio 8 to a Creative Suite but not Studio
            8 to standalone FW CS3 which is not part of a Suite.
