I just received today the Asus E616A and am attempting to install the software, but can't find the key.  Where should it be located?  The CD sleeve has nothing on it and the manual is generic.

The CD Key is on the CD itself.  It says S/N: and then the CD Key letters/numbers. 
It took me a little while to figure this out.  This has got to be the most moronic thing ASUS has ever done.  The instructions are junk.  You don't find out that you need a cd key until after the disc is in the drive and it is on the disc, so you have to eject and start all over again.  Man, what idiots.  And why should we need a cd key anyway.  Is there really a huge pirated disc market for asus dvd???? I think not.

I restarted the PC and tried again - I had 2 letters and 14 numbers hence the 16 character code - I wasted a couple of hours and shortened my life by considerably more! Hpe this helps the next guy!

The serial number on the cd is shorter than what is needed. There are still 3 blocks unfilled using the s/n indicated on the cd when I tried to activate asusdvd.. WTF!!!

I had the same question about activating my ASUS DRW-1608P3S.  ASUS support said: "AsusDVD is an OEM version, it does not need to activate in the installation process."  Any upgrade has to be purchased.
