    I have a program on an older computer that I no longer have the install cd for anymore, but I would like to transfer that program to my new computer. Is there a program or some other method that will allow me to achieve my goal.

    I just saw a program yesterday that would do what you ask. I'll see if I can find it.
    You can take the old hard drive, put it in the other PC as a Slave and the program will run off the old drive. I've got a few things working that way. No problems with it. Even an old 98SE drive into a 2000Pro computer and my son's games work just great from the 98 disc.
    I'll look around for that program for you. Maybe someone else already has the answer.

    Most of the time just simply copying it from 1 HDD to another will do the trick, especially if it's an older program that probably stores the configuration files in the same folder using .ini files rather than in the registry.
