If you're asking what I think you're asking...you can't really do that. You can't just 'transfer' one program to a whole other system.
Find the original install file, and reinstall it on the new system.

Assuming you have another PC, obtain a USB cable or dock.
Remove the drive from the dead PC.
Plug it into that dock.
See what happens.
You might be able to access it and retrieve your files.
