Use Windows to copy the downloaded files to a DVD (or 2) or to a thumbdrive and use that to install it on a new computer. Once you get it installed and working properly, remember to remove it from the old computer. You should always do this with any download programs just fro this reason or for crashes. Look in your Windows downloads folder to see if they are still there.

 

If that new computer has Windows 8, then the product is not expected to run properly over the long run even if you can get it installed.

Do you still have the actual files that you downloaded from Roxio? If so, then what sknis posted, will work. If you are asking about the files that are already installed, from the downloaded files, copying them from one computer, to another, won't work.

Thanks so much both of you for replying so quickly - i have found the files in downloads - could not work out how to use a windows programme to copy them but i saved them to an external hard drive and as i type this they are downloading to my new pc - i have the registration key too so hopefully when the download is complete it will all work properly - i always wanted to know hpw to back up programmes like roxio but the mistake i was making was looking for them in programme 86 files - i didnt realise it was downloads where i should have been retreiving them from !!! told you i wasnt very pc savvy . When i can see everything is working properly with roxio - i will uninstall it from the old pc
