    Hi, I am new to this so please be patient.

    Is it possible to send a full program/application to someone through email? Also how can I send a full folder, not just a file? Thanks heaps!!!

    It's highly unlikely that your e-mail provider would allow you to send a file larger than approximately 3MB. What application are you trying to send? If you or your recipient have dial-up, it will take quite some time to send a large file. You cannot directly send a folder. You would have to compress all the files in the folder into a Zip file using a utility like WinZip.

    I sent my son my MGI Photosuit and he recieved it fine, but when it installed it said it was missing a .dll. Is it possible to send the rest of the folder to him as well as the application? Thanks!

    It's illegal to share that software. Your son needs to pay for his own copy.

    I didn't know that, thanks for telling me. He had a copy anyway, but his 2yr old lost it. We both got cd's with our printers. Thanks!
