How to transfer xp programs from external hard drive to windows 7

My laptop crashed and I just salvaged my hard drive from the computer. How can I transfer all my programs and files from my xp external hard drive to my new laptop which has window 7. The window 7 easy transfer utility program only allows the files to be transferred and not the programs. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

  1. You can only re-install the programs, hopefully some of the setup files were in your Downloaded folders and you can run them from your ext drive or transfer them to the downloads file in Win7
