    I need to make a disk image of the programs i have installed on my computer, the disk image i am using contains a copy of my programs but it also has Windows XP professional how can i restore only the programs i have installed on my computer from an image onto my new computer. I need to use the copy of Windows XP that is on my new computer.

    As far as I'm aware you can't for the vast majority due to registry keys, shared DLL's and other files that applications create/rely on when they are installed. I also imagine that a lot of applications won't allow this as well as it would circumvent say licences.

    Professor Falken, why is it that you ask for advice which you are duly given but then choose to ignor that advice?

    You were told the other week how to use imaging apps, it even tells you how to use the imaging apps on the websites and quel suprise it does in the instruction books too but for some reason you do not take the advice given.

    I know you went to jail for a crime you didn't commit but even Mr T can take instructions :D

    So tell me I cant ask a similar question without offending anyone here on this forum i think that is ridiculous. I was able to create a image of my hard disk but I needed additional information and so i wrote and asked this forum thinking it was ok, so where did i go wrong. Please make it clear to me.

    I have never once since I joined CF seen you help anyone. All I have seen you ask the same questions over and over again.

    Dont you remember? you beat up and old lady but really didn't and your lawyer told you to plead guilty :D

    Sorry if I sound harsh prof but you were given the advice the other week how to use acronis or nortons ghost which will image your system

    It tells you what to do on their websites too, read your previous thread the advice stands.

    Dude - it wasn't a similar question - it was the same question. If you can't retain information that you were given a week ago, maybe you need an nvram upgrade?

    To answer your question you can't just restore specific applications from an image. It's all or nothing.

    I think he is asking to restore say paint shop pro from one PC onto another by using a restore method like ghost. I'm pretty sure you can't as Ghost wouldn't put back the registry entires, shared files etc unless I'm wrong (has been known but only rarely :blink).
