Our lab uses a computer that runs windows 4 (ancient I know) to run specialized equipment. The software we want is rsview32, it runs a program that controls our specialized equipment. We would like to upgrade to a newer computer but we don't have the software nor the program on disk or anything. The only copy is in that computer. The question is, can I do something to get the software out of that computer? Could I copy the contents of the hard drive and run the programs on the new computer?
The computer only has ethernet port, usb 1.0 and floppy disk drive.
**EDIT: The computer uses the ethernet port to communicate with the equipment.
