Default Moving game to different computer, with out disk?

I have a game on this computer, that i really need to change to this new computer of mine. Its not big at all, but, if i burn it to a cd, can i just copy the files to program files in the c drive of the other computer, and then, use shortcuts to open it, or what happens.

Is the game installed, or just one EXE? Because on a rare occasion you can get an extraction software for installed software that takes all the information of a program and assembles the installer but most of them dont work and they have to be for the specific program and version

What game is it? As I can tell you that as long as you own the computer, and the game, then it's completely legal to transport one game from one to computer to another, it's a Federal Law that you use the game as many times as you want as long as it isn't illegal reproduction of the game, such would be burning a copy and reselling it, things liek that.

But how you would go about transferring the game from your computer to your other computer, I would just copy all the files, burn them to a DVD and try installing it to your other PC.

Its called chamionship spades. And baicly it needs this certain file path to run it i guess this is what i have:
C:\Documents and Settings\Kathy.JERRY\Desktop\All Files\Jerry\Championship Spades\ChmpSp32.exe
C:\Documents and Settings\Kathy.JERRY\Desktop\All Files\Jerry\Championship Spades\
C:\Documents and Settings\Kathy.JERRY\Desktop\All Files\Jerry\
C:\Documents and Settings\Kathy.JERRY\Desktop\
C:\Documents and Settings\Kathy.JERRY/
C:\Documents and Settings/
C:\

And mind you thats from, right clicking on the shortcut in a folder on the desktop, and going protertires, and find target. I tried burning to cd, and then, putting it on the other computer, but it needs a certain filepath. and on the other compuer, it sonly got on user, instead of two.

EDIT> and really this game is my dads, it was just easer to say it was mine,...
