Copy preinstalled Cyberlink PowerDVD DX prog

Specs: Windows 7
I have Power DVD DX on my laptop. Is it legal to copy the program folder and add it to my PC?
I do not have an installation disk as the program was alreaqdy installed on laptop when purchased. Both are for personal (no business) use at home. If I can legally do this, can anyone give me step-by-step instructions? Thanks.

Not being familiar with the product in question or it's licensing terms I cannot comment on the legality of doing this. But I will say that it is unlikely to work, and if it does you will likely have problems. Most modern software cannot simply be copied this way, it must be properly installed. To do that you need the install disk.

Transferring software (except for portable applications) from one computer to another is so difficult that experts rarely try, and succeed even less often.

You can copy all you want but chances are it isn't going to work. When you install a program in Windows, it installs files in the Programs folder but also puts dll files in the Windows folder, adds registry entries, etc. Simple programs can sometimes be copied but I doubt Power DVD will.
