@John - I presume you are referring to VAC (virtual audio cables).  If so, then the first step is to install VAC on the new computer.  As with all software, please be aware of the license agreement and do not violate any of the agreed upon conditions.  Some packages will only let you install it on one machine.

Second, VAC stores the cable configurations in the Registry.  If you are good at doing registry surgery, you can copy the reg entries from the existing machine and put them into the new machine after VAC has been installed.  Or you can use the VAC Reg file that FlexRadio created and install it after VAC 4.12 or higher has been installed http://www.flexradio.com/downloads/vac413-reg/

BTW, I have been extensively testing VAC with my FLEX-5000 and it seems to be working well.  Much better than 4.13 which I do NOT recommend.
