Default Hard Drive Program Transfer Question

Hi guys,
I recently bough a hard drive USB connector to take files from my old computer and put them on my new one. I have programs for which I since lost the discs and these include photoshop as well as some others. I was wondering as to whether there was a solution to moving the program to my new computer, as my old hard drive has all the correct files but not a setup.exe

Any help would be greatly appreciate. My old hard drive used XP, I'm currently using Vista.

Thanks,
Chazsan

The only way would be to copy the Whole Windows drive over. Cause you would have to use the File Transfer wizard to move the stuff over. Even then you might not get everything you need.

Best bet acquire a new installer.

You can try going through the steps in this article Microsoft Corporation
but I don't know if that will actually migrate any of your applications.

Hello,

I agree with re-installing the software.
