Can anyone help me with an iWork 09 disc installation?

I downloaded the iWork 09 trial onto my MacBook Pro 13" (mid 2010) and used it successfully for the 30 days. I then purchased the iWork 09 boxed DVD.
(Before inserting the DVD and installing iWork 09, I removed the iWork 09 trial, as well as the previous iWork 08 licensed version. I think I made a big mistake doing this!?)
After installing iWork 09 from the disc and launching it, it keeps requesting me to buy a serial number online! I have already followed the instructions of inserting the DVD again and reinstalling.... it just overwrites the existing files. Still the same problem on launching Pages, Numbers or Keynote!

iWork 08 was much better when they shipped a serial number with the boxed disc!
This new iWork 09 without a serial number in the box is just stupid!!??
How are you supposed to activate it??
Should I not have removed the trial version before installing from the disc?
