Is there some way I can transfer those from the old computer to the new one?
I'd start by printing off the info in Belarc Advisor, for your old PC..
That should present you with the installation keys for all of the apps loaded there.
Then download, and install, the latest versions. on the new PC assuming that they can still be found on line, otherwise use your installation disks.
Another option would be to create a Clone of your Drive using something like Easus, then just pop the new clone into the new PC and try that.
Some people try copying one PC to the new one but they are likely to get themselves up the creek with no paddle because of the differences in the Registries, etc.
