Did you register the new copy to your Amazon account? Not sure what you mean by "get the "Kindle for PC" off the old computer onto the new one". Each software installation is separate.
You can uninstall the one on your old computer, if you want. You might want to delete any books you had downloaded to it, make sure it is sync'ed with your account (to remove licenses for that pc), then uninstall.
