Windows 7: Win 7 re-install and software.

10 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 8.1 Pro x64 (Update 1)
Win 7 re-install and software.

I have Windows 7 installed on my (C) drive and games installed on a separate drive (J)
If I re-install Win 7 on the (C) drive, will I need to re-install the games on (J) as well or will they be playable?

I know I'll have to re-installing MS Visual C++ , but will they be other things to do/install?

What DustSailor said is correct, with the exception of portable software and games that you had which did not require installation in the first place.
