I'm not sure you're working with a viable definition of software.
Here's the definition I get from www.m-w.com:
Main Entry: soft·ware
Pronunciation: 'soft-"war, -"wer
: something used or associated with and usually contrasted with hardware:
as a : the entire set of programs, procedures, and related documentation
associated with a system and especially a computer system;
specifically : computer programs
b : materials for use with audiovisual equipment
