Transferring software to another computer



I would like to transfer my TurboTax software to another computer.


I installed the software on an external drive on a older laptop. I recently upgraded my laptop but when I went to re-install TurboTax, I received a message that I've reached my installation limit. (I also installed the software on my mother's laptop but her income was less than $20K which shouldn't count towards the limit) 


Please inform on how to install the software on my new computer using my external hard drive.
