can I Install software through registry?
Just changed my Hd out to a bigger sshd both the new and the old drive have windows7 64
is there a way I can install a couple of my programs (lost the disks ) from the old drive to the new drive just by copy and pasting program folder to the registry and program folder in the new drive. If so how
can I get to those folders on the old drive (connected to computer through usb now ) ?

Thanks for your help

I see three problems with the above program, when the wording is not clear, can not always spell the product name the same way and is BETA.
