Windows 7: Can you backup installed applications to an external hard drive, then

Windows 7x64 Home Premium SP1
 
 

For licensed software I would just install from scratch. If you have a single PC license then of course deactivate on the old PC first.

Mark, will Acronis True Image 2014 Premium be able to transfer a system disk image to a different set of hardware like the Macrium program you mentioned? Does Win 7 give the dreaded "This version of Windows is not Genuine" error msg?

First of all, you should not be resurrecting a post over two years old to ask a question; instead, you should be starting your own thread.

Second, I don't use ATI anymore, and have not for years, so I don't know what it can do.

Third, if the license is retail, you should be able to do the transfer, but you may have to call MS to get it Win7 reactivated. IF the license is for a copy that came preinstalled on the original set of hardware, it is tied to that hardware and you can't legally transfer it.
