Need to move a program to another computer? Read this first.

Why You Can’t Just Copy a Program’s Folder to a New Windows System (and When You Can) 

"When moving to a new Windows system, either after getting a new computer or reinstalling Windows, you may be tempted to copy a program’s folder to your new system just like you’d copy your files. But this normally won’t work.

Some programs — games especially — do allow you to copy their folders over and run the program. Other programs specifically designed to be “portable apps” will also be able to do this." -How-To Geek
