Which is the easiest way to move a programme (family tree)from my old PC to new one?

Forgot to say I run Win XP home

What do you mean, copy a hard disk to a new hard disk?

Copy and save either floppy/or if to big cd/rw disk,or if you use xp use the backup facility witch isnt installed by default you need to put xp cd in and select perform additioal tasks on the menu then browse the cd then go to the vallueadd folder click that then the msft then nt backup then install the ntbackup by running the set up exe in there,then you can save what you like and transfer it to another xp pc,the same has to be installed on that pc as well.

Thanks all
I need to say I'm moving prog from a PC that runs Win ME to a PC running XP.

I need to have the programme on the new PC, which will also free upsome space on old PC right?

Should be a comma after THANKS ALL
It doe's not read good otherwise (seems cheeky)

You CAN'T copy a program from one computer to another... You have to use the installation wizard for it or find all the files on the system, for example all the registry keys and common files and files in the windows folder

Thanks Matty
It seems a bit tricky for me, as a non techi, is it differcult to do?
Maybe get a PC tech in to do it? I would not mind trying, but I would be afraid I may loose all my work

Matty is there a web site available to walk me through if I decide to try?

Hi Hetti,
as long as you have the set up disks and the program (family tree)is compatible with xp. You install it afresh on to the new XP machine, and then you will only need to copy the database across from the old PC, ensure that it has been imported correctly to the new PC and working correctly, and then you can uninstall it from ME PC... Job done

If you have the exe file then all you need do it copy this and back up the info for the family tree then after install on other pc re-enter it you shold be able to back that up in notepad as a text or through the program if it has that functon.It will only free up space on old pc if you uninstall the program,depending how big the app is.
