  • Can you backup installed applications to an external hard drive, then restore them to another Computer without Reinstalling them? For example, My computer Windows 7 Home Premium has many softwares, applications, programs, utilities, etc.. That i purchased and dont want to Reinstall them on new computer. Is it possible for them to work without Re-entry keys? Any help I will appreciate

  • That's really a question for the Windows 7 forums in technet :-). But becasue of the registry entries and such it's near impossible without remimaging the hard drive and moving it to put an application into a new system without using an installer. Unless its an application that is completely self contained and doesn't use any registry entries...

    Thanks!
