How do I copy installed 32-bit Win7 programs to rebuilt XP computer?

Is there a utility for me to copy installed 32-bit programs form my new 64-bit Win7 computer to my rebuilt 32-bit XP computer, preferably with a LAN cable, and run it on the XP computer?

it's not advisable, it's far better to install programs properly on the other machine. copy the installers onto the new XP machine and install as normal.

some programs stick important files in various folders scattered around the file system, make registry changes etc. a proper install may take some time, but will guarantee success.
