Not easily; best to reinstall the programs.

Yes, it would have saved a lot of work but it's not a good idea.

Acronis can't backup individual Programs, only individual files or whole drives/partitions
Even if Acronis was able to do this, it probably wouldn't "find" ALL the files and registry entries that the program(s) use

Or am I missing something?
