    Programs have to be registered and also have to be registered with Windows as to where they actually are. If you want to have a particular program to be installed on another hard drive there always is a portion installed on Drive C:. What you are going to have to do is re-install the programs so they are on the other drive, if the computer was setup with the programs installed on another drive other than drive C: and the other drive was the same designation as the new one all you would theoretically do is just copy the old drive to the new one.
