Windows 7: Can I move an installed program?

Can I move an installed program?

There are a few occasions I really would have use for a program that could move an already installed piece of software to another location.

For this instance i'm going to use starcraft 2 that i now would like to move over to an SSD hard drive since there's a lot of loading in-game i would like to speed up.

Must i uninstall, move over game folder, then reinstall the game on the SSD or is there some software out there that could provide a solution?

one way of moving folders is by using junction points.

have a look at steam mover - it can move any folder, not just steam games.

it was originally designed for moving files from ssd to hdd, but it can also work the other way around.
