Computer advice needed! recovery of software...


I need to know if it is possible to extract software that has been loaded onto a computer (both Mac OS and Windows XP), so it can be placed on a disk and reloaded onto another machine?

I'm sure it is possible, but I just don't know how to do it!

The software is called inspiration 8 International English Addition.




data files are easy. installed programs are not (necessarily).

some installations are simple and just copy files into a folder. if this is so, you just copy the folder across.

unfortunately, it is far more likely that the installation process has loaded less obvious files e.g. into your registry. in which case pasting the folder across won't work.

do you still have the installation program? e.g. the disk, or the file you downloaded off the internet? if so, stick it on the new pc, run it on there and bobs your uncle.


I once put one of my games onto my external hard drive, took it round me mates house and it worked fine there, off the external hdd, with no registry entry...

If you went looking on torrent sites I'm sure you could find it, ahem.
