I need to reformat my hard drive and reinstall everything. There's one program I use a ton for which I no longer have the install disk. The program is version 6.0, released probably 8-10 years ago, of a title that is up around version 14 now, and not really even the same software anymore. I don't want the new version, the vendor refuses to provide me the old version, and I can't find it in the usual torrent sites or "old version" sites. It's paid software, not open source.
Is there something that can grab all the necessary files, registry writes, etc. and create an install file for me so I can continue to use this software on my new build?
