Reinstalling software after Clean Win7 Install

I am sorry if this is duplicate but I couldn't find anything in search.

I need to clean install Windows but I have relocated overseas and do not have access to some of my software install cd's where I'm at now. Particularly I don't want to lose my Photoshop and that's the stinking install disc I left at home!

Comodo used to have a program called Comodo Programs Manager that allegedly has a make installer module but I for the life of me cannot find this feature in that software at all.

Is there a way for me to clean install Windows 7 and have the ability to reinstall this program without having to send for my discs from an other continent?

Which program ? You mention 2.

Any program can be gotten over the internet.

Photoshop. I know I can get anything I want over the internet but I actually have a license for Photoshop

If the license/s are at hand I'd check whether someone could get the discs to a local shop, have them make .iso images and upload to a file-sharing site for you to download, use a burning program to make exact copies for the installing. The way Adobe has gone with their pricing it'd be much cheaper than buying new.

If your 'old' system with Photoshop is still installed, run the Belarc Advisor. That will list all the product keys for all programs on your system - and a lot more useful information. With that key you can activate a copy of Photoshop that you downloaded from the web.

Your Photoshop disk might be copy protected but as suggested someone can also try to extract it's ISO image for you using ImgBurn - Official Download use Mirror 7 "Create Image File" choice on Main Menu, then upload the file to OneDrive (free 7gb storage/sharing with any MS ID) so you can download it and either extract with 7Zip it's files to run Setup, or burn to CD using Windows Image Burner.
