For the Program Files in the C drive, since new software that are installed have subfolders in here, if I am getting a new computer, and I copy and paste the entire C drive, including Program Files, from the old computer into the new one, will I still need to install the software into the new computer using the CD?

This is obviously a non-soho related question...

The answer is: Yes you have to install the software from the CD. The installation process does much more than simply store the program files in the "program files" folder. It involves an elaborate registration process.
