You didn't say if it was a runing program or just software you have stored on your computer?

I am guessing it's too big for your email system.
You can remove the hard drive from the old computer and put it into the new computer just swap the cables from the CD Player(make sure it's the slave, change the pins on the hard drive to slave and back to master when your done)You will be able to copy anything you want.

Caution If it's an installed program(one thats runing on the computer) it most likely won't work. but if you want to tranfer actual software you have stored on your computer it will.

How do you move software programmes from one computer to another

(NT) You don't move programs...just reinstall the programs.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
