I installed FTM 2014 via CD that was later stolen from my home address. However i had a back up copy of the programme files on an external hd and was wondering if there is any software out there that would help me make a install CD using the original files?

If you are referring to using the files created by the installer you can't use those to create an install cd and you can't likely use them to install on another computer. I suggest that you contact the publisher and see if they will send you a new one.

Hi, townsbg, sorry for the delay in replying. That's exactly what i wanted to do. Since posting i have found my FTM 2011 so i'll just have to go back using that with original tree files. I did have a look at PowerISO but that can only make a boot drive through ISO.
You live and learn. Thanks

You run the program through the files on windows however you must use a special installer to get them on there. That installer is on the cd. The files just don't transfer like that. Installing a program on windows involves creating registry entries as well as configuration files and the program files on your hard drive don't do that. Only the installer does that. I hope that helps.
