How to install Eudora on a Windows 7 PC?

I have been using Eudora for many years, probably more than 20. I have brought it over, with all my folios/directories from one computer to another. I no longer have the installation disc and can't install it on my newest PC (Win 7). Help. I have gone from much earlier versions of Eudora to my latest ( on my last (Toshiba) laptop and been able to bring all the well-organized directories and more than 10,000 e-mails along. But the Toshiba (Windows 7) died this week and I bought a "new"/professionally reconditioned HP laptop (also Win 7) but I can't succeed in getting the Eudora program installed. I guess that the truth is that I can't even isolate the application (and necessary accompanying files) from the directory in which it lived, as I forget what I did the last time. I then need to bring along the directories/folios and install them in the correct place. Can anyone help?
Try changing the default location that Eudora utilizes. If you get prompted during install select it then, if not install Eudora and change the location prior to running it for the first time.

To change the location after install, right click on a Eudora shortcut and select Properties. In the Shortcut tab under the Start in field adjust the location and click Apply.

Use the following location, but substitute "username" with the username for your account: C:\Users\user name\AppData\Roaming\Qualcomm\Eudora
