Yosemite, CS4 and serial # expiration message

I recently upgraded my macbook pro to Yosemite and got an expired serial # message when I opened my CS4 so I freaked and closed the window. When I opened it again it asks if I would like to continue the 30 day trial or to enter a serial #.
I did the clock reset thing but it just prompted me for a serial # this time. The problem is I bought this macbook pro used, fully loaded with all the Adobe Suite programs, 2 years ago and have been using the programs ever since so I know they're not trial programs. I didn't think to ask for serial #'s at the time of purchase and I'm not sure if these were programs downloaded to the computer or installed from discs which I don't have. Are there any solutions to this problem? I did a time machine backup before I upgraded but not sure how that works as far as accessing those programs or if that will help with this issue. Please help, can't afford to buy new programs and already have lots of psd. and ai. files.

If you didn't transfer the licenses and receive the serial numbers, then you do not have a legal license for that software.
