    You can't move a program from one computer to another you will have to reinstall on the 2nd computer. When you install a program allot of entries are added to the registry. That being said if you try and copy the program to another computer there will be many missing registry entries and the program simply won't work. You can however move files and folders from one PC to another but programs will need to be installed from either the CD or the setup file from the downloaded program.
