Running programs from old computer in external enclosure

Had to remove HDD from old PC and unable to install in replacement PC. Difficult to reinstall previous programs due to license concerns. Any hints? Trying to help out my church office.

If you get a new Microsoft license for the operating system, you should be able to use the old HDD in the new computer.
If you contact Microsoft, you might be able to get a license waver due to the reason for the need.
