Programs like Microsoft Office, Microsoft Visual Studio, Adobe Photoshop, iTunes, Autodesk Maya are large programs and they take a lot of time to install.

  • Windows XP/7/8/8.1/10
  • Windows server 2003, 2008 and Windows Server 2012
  • A LAN cable (RJ45).
  • A USB drive or an external hard drive for moving data.

Transfer Programs To New Computer With EaseUs Todo PCTrans

First of all download and install the EaseUs PCTrans software on both of your computers. If you want to buy the software then go here. I will tell the activation tutorial later in this post.

There are two ways by which we can transfer program to new computer. First one is by using a LAN cable to connect the two computers for data migration, second one is by creating an image file of all the programs on old pc then restoring the programs on new computer via this image file.

Method 1: By Using A LAN Cable (RJ45)

  • Connect the two computer by using the LAN cable. On both computers file sharing option should be enabled. You can read this brief tutorial about using LAN cable.
  • Open EaseUs Todo PCTrans on both PCs. On Older computer select ‘Via network connection’.
  • Enter the IP address of the destination computer by clicking the plus ‘+’ sign.
  • In next step select the computer and click the ‘Connect’ button. See the image below showing the list of destination computers.

  • Select the transfer location to ‘Current PC -> New PC’. Current PC is the older one.
  • Now after connecting the computer you will see two options on the older computer, ‘Applications’ and ‘User Data’.
  • Applications include all the programs currently installed on your older computer. Click the ‘Edit’ button to select which programs you want to transfer. By default all programs are selected. The ‘User Data’ incluses personal data stored on your computer’s hard drive, My Documents and desktop. However you can opt out this option if you want to backup/restore your files manually via an external hard drive.

  • Now after selecting applications click the ‘Transfer’ button. Wait for few minutes till the transfer finishes.

Method 2: By Using An Image File

  • Open EaseUs Todo PCTrans on source and destination computers.
  • On the source computer select ‘Via an image file’ then click ‘Create the image file’.
  • Click the three dots on top right corner and select your storage location. It can be a USB drive or an external hard disk.
  • Similarly click the ‘Edit’ button in front of applications and choose the programs that you want to include in the image file.
  • Again you can skip the ‘User Data’ section. But I will suggest you to use this to transfer the ‘My Documents’ folder as it contains data of most application. Simply click the edit button and only select ‘My Documents’.
  • After selecting the applications click ‘Save’. Wait for few minutes till the image is created. This image file has “.PCT” format.
  • Now the image is ready to be restored on the new computer. You should first copy it your external hard drive or USB drive so that it can be transferred to the destination PC.

Restoring The Image File (Applications) To New Computer

  • Transfer the image file to destination PC from your USB drive.
  • Open EaseUS Todo and click ‘Via an image file’.
  • Select ‘Transfer from the image file’.
restore from image file

  • Click the 3 dots on top right corner and locate the image file and select it.
  • The data will be automatically loaded under ‘Applications’.
  • Finally click ‘Transfer’. Your all programs, settings will be transferred to new computer without hassles.
Note: You may need to re-activate MS office again on the new computer with license key. But if you have the FPP version license, you could make a copy of Office 2010/2013 to another computer without the key. FPP, OEM, MLK are three most common types of licenses for MS Office. FPP or Full Packaged Product covers the boxed, retail version, only FPP licenses can be transferred.
