If they are installed from the OS on harddrive C: then no, but if drive D: is a seperate OS, yes

I believe if the programs reside on the D drive you can run them from there, I think.
I just use my separate drive for files, not apps

Edit: i just installed a small app on my extra partition and i was able to run it from my C drive

Okay, then you can't access them (NOT 100% Sure might be some way to do.). You'll have to install them again
