I have a laptop with Windows XP Pro and I have Snagit 8 loaded on it. The laptop died and I have replaced it with a new one that has Windows 10 upgrade. My questions is, what do I need to do to get a Windows 10 compatible Snagit program downloaded onto the new laptop without having to buy a new license? Can I Upgrade to a newer version without having to download the older 8.2 version first?

I don't have Windows 10 but as far as I know you should be able to run SnagIt 8 in "Compatibility Mode" on a Windows 10 machine. Just configure it to run using XP settings. 

You can download SnagIt 8 from this link.
