Put the drive back into the old computer.
Use your new pc to get the suggested downloads.
You could then try booting the old pc with a Linux Live CD, to see if you can still read the drive.
If so, you can copy what you want, onto a flash / external drive.
Ubuntu is popularhttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/LiveCD
It's about a 700MB download of the ISO, which you need to burn to a CD;
if you are not familiar with ISOs, you can't just copy the file to a CD, it has to be burned correctly.
Programs for burning ISOs - ( ImgBurn is popular, but do not install the Ask Toolbar ):http://www.snapfiles.com/Freeware/gmm/fwcdburn.html
You don't have to install, you just boot up with the CD and select the appropriate option,
(ignoring the Install option), from the Menu.
This procedure may get you your information, (your databases);
If you don't know where the program stores the databases, you should be able to find this out
by Googling for the information.
You will still have to install the database program on your new PC;
It is not really possible to just copy it over. (missing registry entries, etc.)
You will have to check for any updates to the database program, to ensure it will work with
your new system. (2 years is not very old, IMO).
