What is the reason for your query? 

You need 7.7.x license key in order to install and use NBU 7.7.3. 

If your maintenance in up to date, you can access your 7.7.x license key on  https://my.veritas.com .

You will need a new license key. 

You cannot use an old license key to obtain or upgrade to new version.
