AutoCAD 2009 - Move program from one Computer to another.

So my boss just recently purchased AutoCAD LT 2013 for one of his two work computers [an upgrade from 2009]. His 2nd computer does not have any AutoCAD software on it at all. What we want to know: Is there a way to physically take the 2009 Program from his main computer and MOVE IT to the other computer that has nothing on it. We do not have the download disks and have noted that you can no longer download the software from the web.  Can this program move be done with the use of an External Hard Drive of some kind? Or will we need to have Audodesk physically give us an "old disk" with the software on it.


Thank you.

you need the installation media.


And just to make sure: if your boss buyed an update from 2009 to 2013 (and not a new full-license) then the usage of 2009 parallel to 2013 (especially on a different pc) is not allowed then (even using 2009 is not allowed as it is older then 3 releases compared to your latest release).
