Is the new computer running windows 7 64 bit edition?
I am going to hazard a guess on personal experience that the software is unable to read or write where it wants to record they license information in the registry. I find this happens often with older 32 bit windows software running on 64 bit OS. You might want to fire up RegMonitor and watch what is doing, and you might be able to fix it from there.
