Hi!
I am about to get a new computer and I currently have Trados 6.5 on my old one - I downloaded both the program and the licence so I don't have a CD. What is the best way to move it to the new laptop? Can I ZIP it - and if so which files? Can/should I download it again on the new machine? Or would they charge me for that? And what about all my other programs and data - what would you do?
Thanks for some advice.
Gillian

Just copy the installer Jan 7, 2005

If you downloaded it, just copy the downloaded installer file to the laptop and start it there. The same goes for the .lic file.

Regards
