I have a Compaq Presario CQ62 with Windows 7 Home Paremium that is a few years old and while everything still works well, after much use/abuse I have broken the case below the keyboard. I just bought a Gateway LT4010u to replace it and I have already upgraded to Windows 7 Home Premium using the key from my old laptop. This upgrade process worked just fine.
Unfortunately, I'm running into trouble trying to get Microsoft Works from my old laptop onto my new one. The problem is that the new Gateway doesn't have a dvd drive. I was hoping there was a way to use my old laptop to load the program on the new one, possibly through the network (both connected via ethernet cable). I really don't like the idea of having to pay for Works for my new laptop when I already have it on the old one I am replacing.
Once I have every thing off the old laptop it will be going in the trash, so its not as though I am to cheat on the license. I just want to get what I have already paid for on the old equipment transferred to the new equipment. Any way to do this?
