Im fairly sure my laptops about to **** the bed, so I need to, by myself, somehow get POD Farm (You may know what it is), and Guitar Pro 5 onto an external hard drive. Is this something I could do by myself?

Just copy the installers and your personal files associated with those programs.

...modes and scales are still useless.

If the programs are standalone, requiring no registry entries, then yes. But you can't do that with most programs. You have to install them through an installation file.

yes. find the shortcut and right click it and hit properties. then there should be a little box saying something like "find target" or "go to target." click that and it should bring you to a folder containing something like GP5.exe. move that whole folder into you external HD.
PAH!

Like Darkstar said, most programs have ties to the system registry. Won't work just by copypasta.

If you move ALL of the registry and program files to it and put them in the right place on the new computer, then yes.

surely if you've got the installation discs and files you can just reinstall them

Or torrent them when you get a new computer.
It takes a lot longer but it's a certainty that you'll get the programs back

getting the registry settings to transfer isnt hard either, ive been doin it with gp5 for a while now, just go into the reg (winkey + r then type winreg) then just search for guitar pro, right mouse click on the folder, export reg settings to wherever and voila.... unless its a mac in which case idc

I'm fairly sure you need to type "regedit.exe"

First you delete system32..

EDIT: lol I didn't even see the above post.

C:\Program Files

Copy the entire folder of whatever program it is you want to your external HD.
I haven't ever needed to do this, so I've never actually tried it, but it should work.

EDIT: You'll also need to deal with the registry stuff, which someone else explained earlier.
