    If its just music files you can install itunes and then import all your music from your backup.
    Or transfer it right after you install itunes.
    It should be located at C:\Users\owner\Music\iTunes

    I wonder if he can transfer the library file as well. He'll lose all organization (if he had any) if he can't transfer the library.

    I think he can.
    What I did was copy the whole old itunes folder into the new location and replaced the new/empty folder created by the new install.
    All my apps, ringtones, videos and songs where there just like before.

    Nice. I was hoping that would be the case, but wasn't sure.
