Moving Software to new laptop

I want to move 2 items of software from my old to my new laptop. Unfortunately I can't find the discs. How can i do this please? My old laptop has XP Professional, the new one Home 7.

if it's a single .exe file then you can just copy that, otherwise see if you can download it from the internet or find your disc. it is more likely you need to find the disc (or an installer file [.exe or .msi]) as most programs store their data across several places in the computer AND edit the registry (a disaster if you just copied and pasted from XP Pro to 7 Home!)
