I recently upgraded my mac mini by replacing the hard disk and increasing ram. The old hard disk (10.4) is now in an external enclosure (usb) and the new hard disk has snow leopard. I have moved over data files. Is it possible to move over some applications without having to reinstall? I have reinstalled some applications from the cd, but it is annoying to go through the steps and also not sure how to deal with the register the software sections as the software was already registered on the old hard disk. Some of the software was also updated quite a bit since the original install and some of the software was partly on cd and partly downloaded. For that particular application, I tried reinstalling from cd, but when I opened it,it said I was missing the part that was downloaded and since it is older software, not sure I can get it again or if I would have to buy it again.
