I have a computer (Vista) no longer in use and want to use a program (Cyberlink Power Director) from the oem disk on another brand computer. I have all the install files in a folder on that oem disk. Is there a way to install this program on another computer?

I feel I've paid for this software originally with the purchase of the old computer.

Thanks in advance for any help

if it has some sort of manufacturer recognition in the software then it will tell you that it won't work by some of error warning or message.
try to install it, it might just work.
copy over the folder and then run the setup.exe

Thanks Malmental, I tried that and it does appear that the original software is tied to the OEM system. However, I found last years version (1 ver. newer than the one I tried to transfer) on Ebay for $45. A very reasonable price. so I bought it.
