Hi i have built a new p.c with vista on the hard drive. I would like to take out the hard drive of my old desktop and add it to the new p.c as it has alot of my games installed on it. The old hard drive does not have an OS on it but was in a p.c that had XP installed on it. Is this a simple procedure? what actions must i take.
Even if both PCs were running the same OS, the games would be extremely unlikely to work.
In the vast majority of cases software needs to be run through an install process. This not only copies the software files to appropriate places, but does a multitude of other things that integrates the software into the environment of the host OS, such as registry entries, menu entries etc.
