The license information comes with the CD, usually on a sheet of paper if the CD was mailed to you. Once installed the license information is part of each company file (because it wants to know about payroll, if any).  You needed that initial license number to install QuickBooks.

If you are have difficulty with Activation or are trying to re-install and have lost the key, the best approach is to call QuickBooks Support and ask for licensing.

Start QB, then go to Help/About Quickbooks. Your license key, product code, and number of users will be shown on the dialog provided.

I haven't had a CD in a while. QB is a love/hate thing for me.  I think I have only downloaded the install the last couple years. I keep forgetting that I don't have a CD. QB seems to have migrated away from that.
