From which phone to which phone is a factor. As they may be on different Operating Systems then it wouldn't be compatible I would presume. So let me know which phone and model and we can then decide if it is indeed possible.

I know I can on my Windows Mobile 6 phone.  I don't know about your Android phone, though I would suspect so.

Well, I presumed we were talking about an installer program.  If I download an application, then install it I have the original installation executable on my phone.  I can save that to my SD card (if I didn't already put it there when I downloaded it), then move that SD card to another phone and use it there.

I don't believe there is any way to copy an installed executable, unless it's somehow self-contained.  (a standalone .exe, or an .exe with all dependencies in the same folder).  As to locating the executable, that would depend on your OS and whether or not the application came pre-installed.  In a Windows phone, I'd look in the Program Files or Windows directories first.

It seems that to purchase apps from the android market you created a google checkout account. As long as the other phone is an android phone as well then you can log in to your google checkout account and download the app again without being charged. Is this what you are trying to do?
