I should have used the "@RoWin7" earlier, because I wanted to know how she accomplished her double intalls. :)

How do you handle the license situation? Some programs are smart enough to call home and make sure only one computer has that one particular license, Cyberlink products are a good example, Acronis is another good example.
All my programs are free, including Open Office and Macrium Reflect. No license, and I don't need all the extra functions in Acronis. I have 50 programs on both computers, and I'm setting up another one soon, because the machines are all 7 to 10-years-old and I need 2 functioning computers at all times.

My games are free too, or online.

Most developers offer both free and paid versions. Income from paid versions allow the company to offer the free versions, anti-viruses for example. I don't need support on most of my programs, but if I do, almost all have online forums. E.g.: this forum for my password manager. They also offer email support, even for the free program.:

Just remembered, I did pay $100 for PaintShopPro for my Win 98, but as the Jasc Co. no longer exists, no one cares if you move it from computer to computer and re-register it. The newer versions owned by Corel are much too complex for me, and I wouldn't be using most of the functions.

Sticky Password Free - Sticky Password forum
Thanks RoWin7, I just pinned that tab. Will be looking in that forum quite often during each month!

Do you use Sticky Password too? You can see there are very few problems, whereas my first PW manager, LastPass, devolved into a mass of unsolved bugs after LogMeIn bought it.

You probably have some paid programs that you love, so my method of migration might not work for you.
