Hi all,

 

This is my first post here !!

 

Recently bought a new PC and moved up from XP to 8.1

Over time I have a accumulated a number of programs from other than strictly kosher sources and have no discs or keys.

Is there any way I can transfer these from my old PC to the new one?

As examples, two of the programs are "The Print Shop 22" and Adobe Audition 3.0

 

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

 

Regards

 

Vicart

That won't be possible Vicart since its either the disc needed for you to install and or keys if ever the paid program is available for download online. Free programs however are alternatives and may be compatible with the newer Windows version.

What do you mean by "strictly kosher sources"?

To me, strictly Kosher is another way of saying strictly legitimate.

In other words, not stolen cracked programs.

Clearly the origins of Kosher, ie: Killed by the Rabi have come along way in these modern times to be more loosely interpreted.

I remember when we were kids playing cards or any game and if/when someone felt the other was cheating or bending the rules, they might say, "hey, that's not Kosher".

The way Your post is worded indicates to me that this from our rules applies.

I have highlighted the pertinent part above.

 

 

No subject matter will be allowed whose purpose is to defeat existing copyright or security measures. If a user persists and/or the activity is obviously illegal the staff reserves the right to remove such content and/or ban the user. This would also mean encouraging the use or continued use of pirated software is not permitted, and subject to the same consequences.

 

For this reason I am locking this post, If You feel I have made a mistake, please PM me so I can re-open the post.
