Yes, you can load the info on a new PC. Family Tree Legends has also been renamed into MyHeritage. Their product related to Family Building is now called Family Tree Builder. The Tree Legends doesn't appear to be available anymore. In this case, you need to manually transfer the setup package on Windows 10, but before you do that, open the application and use File > Save AS or File > Export to create a copy of the database. Afterwards, transfer the software on Windows 10, right click it and choose Properties > Compatibility. From the drop down menu, select a prior version of Windows that worked for the application and apply the changes. Install it normally and then use File > Open or File > Import. Locate the copy of the database and that's it.
