    1) You have a license for the software on one computer and one computer only. We do not discuss piracy around here, sorry.

    2) You probably have some additional QuickTime codecs installed on the old machine that you need on the new machine. You should be able to just copy them over.

    3) I'm not even sure what the problem is! Can you please try and ask the question using English?

    As robbieduncan says, that's illegal and shouldn't really be attempted. :(

    If you want to play them in QuickTime, you may need DivX. I recommend looking into VLC though. It's a stand-alone player but it'll play most file formats.

    Do you have Stuffit installed? Irrespective, you could use VLC to play your WMVs except for the latest WMV10 files which even WMP on the Mac won't play. There is no way to play WMV10 on OSX at this stage. Fortunately, these files are reasonably rare. :)
