Transferring programs to new hard drive

  Belatucadrus 12:41 28 Sep 2007

As you've already discovered, most software adds entries to the registry during installation, without theses entries it doesn't work and manually replicating them is near impossible.
It may be possible to mirror copy the original drive to another, but as from the sound of it, you've already got the replacement drive up and running, I'm not sure if that's still a viable option, presumably other forumites more aware of the capabilities of those packages can clarify this.
Let us know what programs are causing problems, there's a wealth of good freeware out there and we may be able to point you to some suitable alternatives.
